UK adventure park helps turn used cooking oil into biodiesel

news item image
Chessington World of Adventures has outlined its ambitions to recycle at least 50% of all its waste on its site in the UK.
The leisure resort, which boasts rollercoasters and family-friendly amusement rides, also recycles used cooking oil (UCO) at its various eateries and restaurants on site, which is later converted into biodiesel.
A spokesman for the adventure resort, which is located near London, said: “None of our waste goes to landfill, anything that cannot be recycled is converted into energy and put into the national grid, at a site less than 25 miles away.
“We are continuously trying to reduce the amount of waste that is not recycled by increasing staff awareness and understanding of our waste streams.”
The theme park which was originally opened in the 1930s as a zoo now boasts over 40 rides and is home to over 1,000 animals.
