Waste and recycling education

At Amey, we are passionate about educating others about the importance of recycling for the environment, so in partnership with Peterborough City Council we run a number of waste education services across the city.

Amey is committed to supporting the communities it operates in and are keen to teach young people what happens to their waste and how they can recycle more.

We are proud to support local educational institutions and community initiatives to provide activities which encourage and educate residents to engage in waste reduction and the importance of recycling and waste management.

We offer free, fun and engaging sessions for schools, managed by a trained and experienced waste education team.

Understanding the wider issues surrounding the environment and sustainability is becoming an important part of education. Our waste and education team help to convey these messages through various interactive sessions.  We aim to inspire children and young people to lead the way in future sustainable living.

Topics we cover:

  • What’s in the bins in Peterborough?
  • What should we recycle?
  • What happens to your waste and recycling?
  • What can you do to recycle more?
  • The future of waste

The waste education team have a number of resources which can be brought into schools and used during lunch time for educational play.
