Schools Against Waste

Our Schools Against Waste team are helping to promote the rollout of the new 'Recyle More' service from Somerset Waste Partnership which started in autumn 2020 and allows more items to be recycled from the kerbside.


We can offer your school a FREE virtual visit, featuring a half day of activities to help raise awareness amongst children and staff and encourage everyone to 'Recycle More'.



What we can offer

  • A free virtual half day visit

Including an assembly and 2 x 1-hour Curriculum linked workshops. For details of our workshops please see the links below.


  • Talking Rubbish whole school virtual assembly 

    This will introduce the children to the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ message and explain the new Recycle More service.  *We will provide a link for the session so that all of your classes can join the virtual assembly.


  • Practical advice and support to help your school waste less and recycle more.


All of our sessions are linked to the curriculum and will be practical and fun, giving children a better understanding of waste and recycling issues.



Testimonials and Reviews

“This programme is a great way of teaching even very young children about recycling and inspiring them that they can take action to make a difference. Their enthusiasm and knowledge then gets taken home and, hopefully spread through their families and community. It is hugely important that the next generation has this input and gets into good habits as young citizens. Thank you.” Dunster First School, 06/04/2022
