Reduce Waste and Encourage Recycling in your School

Could you reduce the amount that your school sends to landfill?

Does your school have an effective recycling programme in place? It is important to encourage recycling around your school, not only to help reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill, but also to help your pupils understand the importance of recycling and instil this in them from an early age.Glason recycling and waste bin in a school

It may be hard to believe, but the average secondary school pupil produces as much as 22kg of waste each academic year, while the amount for a primary school pupil is over double at 45kg*.  By introducing a recycling scheme in your school, this figure could be greatly reduced.

With a wide selection of recycling options available for the collection of paper in your classrooms, confidential waste from your offices, or empty bottles, cups or food waste in the canteen and food hall the ideal solution can be found at
