Welcome to our Junior Recycling Officer Resources Page. We aim to provide you with information and download resources which we hope will be useful to you in promoting the 3R's 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle' in your school community and with family and friends.

Unfortunately we cannot operate the Junior Recycling Officer scheme in the way we usually do.  However, we do want you to continue with your Junior Recycling Officer scheme in school.  We hope this page will be a one-stop resource for everything you need for your Junior Recycling Officers to promote the 3R’s within your school.  Please make use of the resources below. 

You may also wish to make use of the range of waste reduction videos on this link.  You can even create your own waste reduction video to share at your school assemblies!

Please ensure you continue to follow the Covid-19 guidelines set out within your school for any Junior Recycling Officer activities.

Please let us know if you are running any  JRO activities in your school. We might not be able to visit you in person but we can still work together to make a happier, healthier planet earth.  Please contact us as the email below.

We can also offer your school a virtual assembly, please get in touch to arrange this.

If you any questions about the Junior Recycling Officer scheme please contact teamrecycling@cheshireeast.gov.uk.
