Recycling in action

Key Stage 2 playing 'Who wants to be a recycl-aire?'
'We are stars', it says on the display board - and they certainly are!

Hearing the story of Ian Graham (recycling officer) and his amazing recycled Time Machine

We love sharing the recycling message with the local schools, and were delighted to be invited to take part in South Parade primary school's Science Week.

By listening carefully to the story 'No Time To Waste' and answering the quiz questions, Key Stage 2 classes learnt about rubbish and recycling through history, and what we need to do now to save our planet. We are now producing more rubbish than at any other period of time in history, and that needs to change.
We're looking forward to visiting a Year 5 class again in Climate Week, for them to have a go at making their own recycled paper, out of old magazines.
School visits are so important because these children are going to be making the decisions in the future - and they are often much more enthusiastic than most adults!
