The 4Rs

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



Cutting down on rubbish means you throw less away


Using something again makes it last longer


Recycling means that resources don’t get wasted


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, re-use and recycle!


Click here if you’d like to take an even closer look at the waste family & resources webpage – 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, click here to see the 4Rs song!
