Free trips to the recycling centre for Lambeth school children

Recycling being sorted by machine

Recycling being sorted by machine

A trip to our transfer station and recycling facility is great way to help children learn about looking after their environment. Your pupils (and staff) can see what happens to what they throw away, and learn why it is so important to reduce, reuse and recycle their own waste.
Children can see and feel recycled materials, get ideas for their own recycling crafts, and have a go at sorting rubbish themselves. They can then watch recycling being sorted by machine into different materials.
Outside they can view our cranes loading 12 tonne containers of black bag rubbish onto barges on the Thames, ready to be transported for burning to generate electricity. They can also meet our composting worms.

New for 2014/15 – you can extend your visit with a hands on recycling session, each child can make their own piece of recycled paper to take home!

Previous visitors have really enjoyed the sessions!

“the children said it was the smelliest trip but the best – high praise indeed”

“the children (and adults) had a fantastic time and came back to school full of new information and lots of ideas on how we can promote the 3 Rs.”

Visits are FREE but must be booked in advance. Please email education@wrwa.gov.uk or call on 020 88758885/9 to make a booking.
