UK-wide Home Recycling Challenge live!
We are delighted to announce the launch of a UK-wide Home Recycling Challenge with children's TV presenter Maddie Moate, and recycling hero, Captain Busta from Wastebuster. This challenge aims to engage children and their families in finding out what they can and can’t recycle locally by using Recycle Now’s Recycling Locator.
There are loads of prizes up for grabs both for schools and families who take part in the challenge. Please encourage any schools you have contacts with to register for the Home Recycling Challenge. You can access a short film on our website to find out what the challenge is all about or you can go directly to the Home Recycling Challenge to register for the teachers' pack and competition sheet.
As part of this campaign there is also a huge new range of teaching resources for Key Stages 1 and 2, which have been developed in partnership with Wastebuster. These are now available for you to download and use. Simply go to the Wastebuster website and register to access them for free. All the resources are also available on WRAP's Resource Library.
The resources include a great range of material-specific films including a film which can be played in assembly promoting the Home Recycling Challenge. There is also a supporting cross-curricular activity pack to help children understand how things are recycled and the benefits of recycling.
Please help spread the word and let's get children across the UK to be recycling heroes!
