How to reduce waste and recycle at school
Reducing, reusing and recycling waste at school is good for the environment, enriches the curriculum, helps schools to become more sustainable and can result in money savings.
An effective way to reduce waste and recycle at school is to have a whole school approach, therefore building ownership amongst the school leadership team, the school support staff and the teachers so that the responsibility for embedding waste minimisation and recycling is shared and acted upon across the school. This enables legacy to build into the activities carried out around the school and allows the school to sustain improvements in waste minimisation and recycling.
