Recycle Week is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. This year’s theme is: “Recycling – at home and away” and will focus on metals, plastics, packaging, textiles and food waste.
Primary schools generate 45kg of waste per pupil per academic year and secondary schools 22kg per pupil per academic year.
Schools can take the week as a chance to look at how their school can reduce its waste and also up their recycling. It’s also a great way to raise funds using one of the various recycling companies that will collect clothes, DVDs, and printer cartridges.
