Recycling in schools

Recycling at school is a great way to save resources and get children involved in environmental issues.

If your school isn’t recycling already, we can provide a tailored waste and recycling collection service for your school. This could even save you money, as recycling collections are often cheaper than general rubbish collections. 

The more your school recycles and the less rubbish it produces, the more money you could save!

Recycling can also contribute to achieving other initiatives such as Eco Schools and Sustainable Schools.

Pledge 4 plastics is the national plastics recycling initiative which aims to boost plastic recycling in the UK and achieve real behaviour change through consistent and simple messages. Please see the secret life of recycled plastics video for more information.
