Recycle

Recycling saves energy and resources. By recycling one tin can you could save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours! It also reduces the need for new materials, which is great news if you want the Earth's resources to last a little longer!

 

Meet Robin Recycle and his dog Rebel!

 

Robin and Rebel are mad about recycling. They love anything that’s made from plastic, paper, cardboard, metal or cartons and they know how important it is to preserve the world’s resources by making the stuff we already have last longer.

How else can you recycle?

 

Use your classroom recycling bins to recycle as much as you can and don’t forget the kitchen and staff room too. Could you recycle fruit and vegetable scraps at your school by composting or even cooked food if you have a food digester system? Find out more about recycling food waste on our composting pages and find out what happens to your recycling here.
