Three Rs are top of the class

by

Children helping with a school waste audit (large version)Almost 8,500 school children across the county have taken part in activities designed to teach them about the three Rs – reduce, reuse and recycle – this past academic year.

Our recycling officers visited more than 80 local schools as part of a fun and interactive programme to educate youngsters about the benefits of reducing waste and helping the environment.

Activities include:

  • Educational shows such as Recycler the rapping robot
  • Assembly or individual class talks
  • Visits to the education centre in Wareham – pupils discover how and what can be recycled, take a look at objects made from recycled materials and learn about composting
  • Trips to Wareham household recycling centre and landfill sites
  • Quizzes, pictures and fact sheets
  • Waste audits
