Recycling in schools

Education on minimising waste and increasing recycling participation starts at school. Currently too much of our rubbish is sent to landfill, there must be a better option...

Schools recycling We need to take action now to reduce, reuse and recycle as much of our rubbish as possible.

Schools play a vital role in communicating these messages to children, their families and throughout our wider community.

We are committed to educating the next generation (and future residents) about sustainable waste management and the associated environmental issues. We can arrange to deliver a range of educational presentations and interactive activities to promote the key themes of the 3Rs- reduce, reuse and recycle.

Recycling for schools

We can provide schools with green wheeled bins for recycling which we will collect every two weeks with no charge for collection. Just contact us if you would like a green bin.

Waste education

Here at Uttlesford District Council we are keen to help to educate the next generation about waste and the environment issues.  We can arrange to deliver educational classroom talks and fun interactive activities to promote our key messages.

Benefits of waste education include:

  • Increasing the awareness of waste and its management to both pupils and school staff
  • Encourage and support schools to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste
  • Tell other people so that we can all help to achieve increasingly sustainable waste management at home
