Recycling in Southend
Recycling - Resources for Schools
This area provides schools, pupils and parents with easy access to a range of information relating to recycling and waste management information and activities.
Eco-Schools, run by Keep Britain Tidy, aims to raise students' awareness of sustainable development via a mix of classroom based learning and community action. Schools follow an Eco-Schools programme, working towards a Green Flag status - an internationally recognised symbol for environmental excellence. The programme is an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environmental footprint of a school, a change which inevitably leads to a more sustainable, less costly and more responsible school environment. For more information regarding the Eco-Schools programme and how to become an Eco-School please see their website.
The Recycling Knowledge area of the Recycle Now website provides information for schools to set up recycling schemes, and teaching resources for secondary schools provides Composting at School
There are also a number of schemes which can raise funds for your school while you recycle. Please see Shoe Friends and Clothes Collectors run by Lawrence M Barry.
Bin It! provides teachers with free entertaining and informative resources for all pupils aged between 5 and 18 years old. These free resources include fun animations, assembly ideas, project tasks and lesson plans, all designed to help enable pupils of all ages learn about responsible litter disposal.
The useful websites on the left hand side of this page provides links to further resources and information dedicated to recycling and littering education.
