Free Educational visits for all Leeds schools

Free Educational visits for all Leeds schools

What better way to mark this years' Recycling week 24-30th Sept (see attached to display from 24th Sept please) than to take your pupils on a free visit of one of Leeds' environmental experiences to learn more about how we manage waste. The aim of the week is to encourage everyone to recycle more, by demonstrating the benefits of recycling items from all around the home. Educational visits are available at;

  • Leeds Recycling & Energy Recovery Facility (including a brand new set of Fact File resources supporting learning at KS 3 & 4)
  • Kirkstall Road Household Waste site, and to see what happens to Leeds green bin recyclable waste visit our Materials Recycling Facility at HW Martins.
