Waste Nothing School Challenge

An inter-school challenge to educate and encourage pupils and their families to reduce waste and recycle more at home. We’re challenging pupils with five fun tasks which they have two weeks to complete – prizes are up for grabs! Once the first inter-schools challenge is complete, the challenge will be available for all schools to purchase and run independently.

Waste Nothing School Award

To recognise the brilliant efforts schools are already making, as well as encouraging them to go even further, we're awarding schools a bronze, silver or gold Waste Nothing Schools Award for implementing long-lasting changes to reduce waste and improve recycling. Reach for the gold!
