Plymouth Incinerator

On Thursday 15th of March a group of 9 children headed across to the incinerator to see what happens to all the rubbish we pop in our brown bins. We learnt that it goes into a large furnace, gets burnt down to ash and then the heat created from this gets turned into electricity to power the whole of the dockyard and most of the homes in Devonport. The ash that is left over then gets turned into tarmac to make our roads. Everybody had a great time and loved looking into the burning furnace.
