Supporting schools to reduce waste

For over 15 years we have supported the City of Edinburgh Council in their waste prevention programmes, delivering assemblies and workshops in nurseries, primary and secondary schools across the city.

  • Last year we worked with nearly 100 schools, running over 300 different activities that engaged with over 11,000 pupils
  • 84% of schools had improved or started recycling activities post engagement by the service.

Feedback from teachers included:

“Changeworks provides a high quality service which is embedded now in our curriculum planning.”

“Changeworks litter story time really supplemented our Eco Schools Litter topic. It gave the children another aspect to how they can help reduce waste by encouraging their own families to recycle.”

“Changeworks is a fabulous resource to have available to us.”
