Further information

Waste and recycling service

Through Leicester City Council your school can receive a comprehensive waste and recycling support. For information please contact Kimberley Tilley or 0116 454 6742 .

Lesson and activities

Lessons and activities can be offered for EYFS through to KS4 students. KS4 students are also able to visit the Ball Mill, which is responsible for diverting approximately 70% of wheelie bin waste from landfill and is the only one of its kind in the UK. Please see below for activities which can be offered to your school. 

We have produced an EcoTeach Webinar all about waste and recycling here in Leicester. Why not take a look?
