Schools and education

The recycling2go team works hard to make sure that people of all ages understand the benefits of recycling, and we are often invited to speak at schools. If you would like to invite us to attend your school, please contact us.

Teachers: Take a look at our Rushcliffe Recycling Activity Book below, if you feel it would be useful please contact us, ask to leave a message or speak to the recycling officer for more information.

We're happy to visit you and help with recycling awareness (and our colleagues from Streetwise can help with teaching young people about respecting their local area and not dropping litter). Young people are often very concerned about the environment, and benefit from hearing about what happens locally to help take care of it.
At the same time, once school children have learned about recycling2go, they can help to ensure that their own families recycle everything they can.
