Waste management in education

Infants, children and adolescents spend an awful lot of time in school. So it is very important that schools set a good example by showing them how to deal with waste in a sustainable way. Vanheede Environment Group can help you at every level, from putting out the right bins in the right places to providing educational material for pupils. It would be our pleasure to build a sustainable future for all with you!

A green school

Schools generate various types of waste. Paper and cardboard seem logical enough but there is just as much food waste and PMD. Then you have to add in vocational education such as mechanics, woodwork and metalwork plus chemistry and the sick bay which all have their own, specific waste. The right bins in the right place - that's the starting point for the Vanheede Environment Group. We strive to close the circle and sorting of waste at source enables us to recycle and reuse as high a percentage of material as possible. Together we can paint your school green!

The waste streams you are likely to generate

Choose from the waste streams listed below. We will show you at once which bins are suitable and what we will do with your waste.

A clear recycling message

Who learns young, forgets not when he is old. That is also true for recycling waste. And that is why we would like to encourage schools to deliver a clear and correct message about sorting and recycling. The fact is, the children of today will be the adults of tomorrow. So it is also important that they learn how to look after our planet and our environment in a sustainable way. And obviously that includes recycling waste. Set a good example and raise awareness among both colleagues and pupils.
