The education work we do with nurseries and schools is lots of fun - both for the children and teachers who take part AND for our Waste Education team themselves! Throughout the year we hold loads of eco events, competitions and workshops and we're always impressed by how keen the kids are to learn about composting, reducing waste, reusing materials and of course recycling things that we don't need any more.
To celebrate a wonderful school year this year and all their eco activities, we held a special event at Holyrood Park Education Centre, and invited all our schools and nurseries along.
