Recycling at school is an important way to get children involved in tackling climate change and other important issues
Recycling will also help your school save money. We have provided lots of resources and tips to help you get started.
The average school currently spends between £300 and £1000 on waste disposal each year (depending on size), and produces a minimum of 1 tonne of waste per term!
One way to stop unnecessary waste is not have it in the first place. Doing presentations, homework and written activities online can support a move to going paperless. It means less money being spent on paper, lesss trees being cut down to make the paper and less of a chance of your homework being eaten by the dog 😉
