Recycling for schools

Recycling

Recycling Centre tours

The Western Riverside Waste Authority run an education programme to encourage pupils and staff to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle as much as possible. They run visits to the recycling centre where the children can see for themselves what happens to their waste, with hands on activities. They also deliver assemblies and workshops in schools. Visit their Schools page for more information.

To book at tour email education@wrwa.gov.uk or call 020 8875 8885/9.

Additionally, the charity Traid has an active education programme which focuses on textile recycling. There's no charge. Email sarah@traid.org.uk  to get involved.
