Recycling and education for schools
Recycling in schools
Recycling at schools is easy and encourages children to take an interest in the environment in a ‘hands on’ way.
You can recycle all of the following materials in the recycling containers we provide for schools:
- Mixed glass bottles and jars
- Food and drink cans
- Plastic bottles (no other types of plastic please, only bottles)
- Mixed card
- Mixed paper
- Food and drink cartons
- Telephone directories
The materials can all be mixed together as they are sorted out after collection at a materials recovery facility (read more about this in frequently asked questions).
We can also provide a separate container to collect food waste for composting.
Learning about recycling and waste reduction in schools is a great way for children to become involved in improving our environment.
We offer a wide range of fun educational activities for schools that enhance the national curriculum and help schools to become more sustainable.
If you are a teacher and would like to book a visit or discuss how we might support your school please contact us.
