Schools Colleges & Universities

Recycling in the education sector teaches children the environmental message from a young age. We provide recycling bins and information for schools, colleges, and universities.

In schools, effective recycling has many benefits. Youngsters learn the key message of environmental responsibility, whilst managers can save money and enjoy improved environmental performance. Premier Waste Recycling can provide equipment, collections, and advice to help any academic institution recycle more and reduce their carbon footprint. Our waste and recycling services are reliable, affordable and effective – meaning you get the best possible value to make the most of your budget.

School Recycling Solutions

Our school recycling solutions include easy ways to get children and young people involved. As well as separate bins for paper, card, plastic bottles and cans, we can offer co-mingled bins. Co-mingled bins are for mixed collections of paper, card, bottles, and cans – with no need to separate waste types. As everything goes into the same container – and the contents are sorted by us – it’s the simplest way to recycle. Co-mingled bins are therefore an ideal choice for schools, taking the complexity and hassle out of recycling.

Premier Waste Recycling can also support your school with recycling information and advice. We have produced a National Curriculum guidance leaflet, which you can read more about in our education section.

Information & Advice

Recycling bins in educational establishments should be located near the source of waste wherever possible. Premier Waste Recycling can advise you on the best place to put your bins, as well as which types would best suit your institution. We can also advise on a collection timetable to suit the size and scale of your recycling collection facilities or bin store.

We aim to make waste management in schools and colleges as simple, cost-effective and efficient as possible. So, in addition to your recycling, we can also collect general waste and food waste for a completely streamlined approach.
