A Waste Audit is a brilliant way of finding out how much rubbish your school creates and what type of things you, pupils and staff are throwing in the bin. This can then help you to organise better rubbish collections for your school, and work out what type of recycling bins will work best in your classrooms, playgrounds, school grounds and staff rooms.
We can provide help and support in carrying out Waste Audits. Contact our Educators for more information.
A Waste Audit involves an initial sort of all your rubbish and recycling to get a baseline figure, then pupils can help come up with ways to improve the school system, so your school can reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible. This Action Plan will need to be agreed with school caretaking staff and extra bins may need to be purchased (See our Fundraising pages for further ideas to raise some cash). A second audit is then taken to monitor how successful the Actions were. Waste audits can link to the curriculum in both geography and maths lessons.
