Broxtowe Clean & Green Campaign

Teaching the next generation…

As part of our Clean and Green Campaign, our Recycling Team have been out and about recently visiting local schoolchildren to help them learn about recycling and protecting the environment for the future.  The children, from reception class, were visited by five of the Council’s Waste and Recycling Team.

As well as having a go in lorries, the children learnt about what kind of things they can recycle, where their waste and recycling goes and what they can do to help protect the planet for the future.

One of the Council’s Refuse men had a welcome return to Sunnyside Spencer Academy, 40 years after he was a pupil there!

As well as learning about how the refuse vehicles work, the children took part in a litter pick to help them take pride in the local area.

Teaching Assistant, Cannisha Busuttil said: “The children had an amazing time litter picking in their own community with the Clean and Green team… and the visit from the refuse collectors and their lorry made a lot of smiles for the whole day!!! In fact the children are still talking about it now!!!”
