These materials can be collected weekly, fortnightly or at a frequency that suits you best.
By recycling with us as a school, you will be reducing the amount of rubbish sent to landfill, saving energy and raw materials as well as helping to tackle climate change.
Reusing and recycling items means that less waste has to be buried in the ground in landfill sites, or burnt in incinerators, plus we save valuable resources by turning waste into new products!
Recycling uses less energy than making items from scratch, for example, recycling an aluminium can saves 95% of the energy needed to make a completely new can.

Reducing the energy used to make and transport products means less carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. Recycling also cuts the amounts of methane, another powerful greenhouse gas, which can be given off by biodegradable materials as they rot under pressure in landfill sites.
We can help you to improve your environmental credentials and show your pupils how to deal with their waste responsibly as they become young adults.
If you are working towards a Green Flag Award or need to show development to retain an award we can help! We offer FREE waste audits to Newport Schools where we can take a look at what waste you are throwing away and come up with solutions together to suit your needs.
