Schools Recycling Programme
An integral part of the Recycle for Hampshire campaign is the schools recycling programme which offers schools the opportunity to receive free support and advice about recycling. Our team of Education Officers work with a number of schools each term to increase their knowledge of recycling and help them introduce a variety of changes to ensure they reduce their waste and recycle and compost as much as possible.
A survey of schools who completed the programme revealed 90% felt the educational benefits were excellent and 97% believed it had helped them improve their recycling and reduce their waste. 84% of teachers felt the recycling messages had been passed to all or most pupils and that the majority of parents were aware of the programme.
