Virtual session: Half term recycling fun and facts


Monday 15th February 2021


  • 10am-11am

Are you looking for ways to engage your children over half term with doing their bit for the environment? Then why not take part in our virtual recycling session?

One of our education officers will lead the session with interactive activities, top tips to help you recycle right and interesting information about rubbish and the technology used in Greater Manchester.

Primarily aimed at children but adults are welcome too. ( Parents/guardians must be on the call for safeguarding reasons).

The session will include:

An introduction to which bin is which and what rubbish should go in each

The opportunity to prove you are a super sorter

“Sorted by science” separating experiment

Your chance to ask all those burning questions about waste and recycling
