The 4Rs

It’s important to get them in the right order to help us look after the Earth’s resources!

 

REDUCE

Cutting down on rubbish means you throw less away

REUSE

Using something again makes it last longer

RECYCLE

Recycling means that resources don’t get wasted

RECOVER    

We can use the rubbish we can’t recycle to make energy

 

Our waste family, Reggie, Rosie and Robin would love to help you find out about all the things they do to reduce, reuse and recycle!

 

If you’d like to take an even closer look – and we’d be happy to let you look after them for a while. You can use them in an assembly or simply for display. They’ve even got their own song you can sing along to!
