Pupils Lead The Way In Recycling Bid

Eco friendly children from Whitburn Primary School are joining in the bid to make South Tyneside a greener place to live.

The planet friendly pupils have been designing their own colourful posters showing how the world will benefit from better recycling, more composting and rethinking how to deal with the vast amount of rubbish we produce.

On Wednesday (19th February) they will see for themselves how easy it can be to take care of the environment and all its precious resources when a group of "green teams" visit the school with games, prizes and fun information about eco issues.

One of the major attractions is sure to be South Tyneside Council's brand new Kerbside collection scheme that is starting in the Cleadon, Boldon and Whitburn areas next week (Monday 17th February). The children will be able to see the special black collection boxes find out what recycling items should be put in them for the fortnightly collection.

Experts from organisations including Premier Waste Management, Groundwork and ENCAMS (Tidy Britain Group) will also be taking part in the roadshow at the school.

Headteacher John Dew says: "We are really looking forward to the event. The children are very interested in environmental issues, they have designed some wonderful posters and can't wait to see all the specialist equipment."
