Guiding the next generation

Education waste

Waste Experts work with Schools, Colleges, Universities, and other places of education to help reduce their waste output, whilst proactively implementing a good recycling culture amongst students and staff. 

Sustainability embedded

broad spectrum of waste streams

Education facilities generate diverse waste streams from canteens, confidential information, and various technologies used. Waste Experts offer tailored solutions for different educational setups. For instance, a University’s chemistry lab produces more hazardous waste than a primary school. Our approach isn’t one-size-fits-all. It is important to provide education to children and young adults on the environmental impact of waste and how they can contribute positively towards this. With a well-organised waste management plan, your School, College, or University can boost recycling rates, reduce landfill waste, and simultaneously educate staff and students.  

Waste Experts implement clear and easy-to-use recycling bins for materials such as paper, cardboard, plastics, and glass. We encourage proper source segregation of waste to ensure recyclable materials are diverted from the general waste stream. We conduct regular waste audits to assess the types and quantities of waste generated by the institution and regularly review and adapt waste management strategies based on the institution’s evolving needs and changes in waste generation patterns.

By implementing effective waste management practices in the education sector it not only reduces environmental impact but also instils a sense of responsibility and sustainable behaviour in the younger generation, who are future leaders and citizens. By leading by example, educational institutions can play a pivotal role in creating a more environmentally conscious society. 

Learning Opportunities

A good waste management strategy can provide teaching opportunities for staff and students to learn about the benefits of recycling and how to apply this in their home lives also.

Plant Tours

We regularly host plant tours at our recycling facility, so staff and students can see first hand what happens to their waste at end of life and highlights the importance of recycling.

Waste Awareness Days

We host on-site waste awareness days at your facility to help educate students and teaching professionals on sustainable waste management practices.

Clear Reporting

Our detailed reporting will help you create a clear waste management strategy and aid in the delivery of your financial, operational and environmental results.

Reduce the amount of waste you produce through controlled purchasing, reduced packaging and bulk buying.


Look at ways you can use items multiple times before replacing them. This also allows products to be used to their fullest extent.


Recycling ensures the materials you throw away are used again by turning them into new products. This also helps to conserve natural resources.
