Rotters Community Composting is running a project to deliver the message of recycling to all schools in Merseyside. Working with Rotters will put your school in a beneficial position to help with your school achieving ECO School status or improving your schools environmental impact.
It is considered healthy to eat at least 5 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day, but what do we do with the bits we don't eat? The majority of people will simply throw the non-edible bits straight in the bin. But it is healthier for the environment if we do something else with all this waste. Food waste, sent to landfill, bio-degrades anaerobically (ie, without oxygen), and as a result produces methane, which just happens to be 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Up to 50% of waste in our wheelie bins can be organic, which we can compost. There are many ways to make compost happen. Working towards a healthier environment is one of Rotters' biggest aims. Be part of this project and find out how we can help your school.
As such, it may be possible for us to provide support for the school to organise either collections of your compostable food waste or assist the school to compost within your school grounds. We can offer support, advice and educational resources for fun ways to introduce recycling and composting into your school curriculum. Included in this we offer a whole school assembly on recycling/composting as an introduction to the scheme.
There are costs for the provision of compost collections. The charges depend on the size of the school, any collection service is tailor-made to suit the needs of each individual school.
If you have any questions regarding this, or would like to arrange a meeting to discuss all composting possibilities, please contact the office on 0151 448 1532 and ask to speak to our Education officer or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
