Junior Recycling Officer resources
JRO Programme 2023
The hunt for the next Junior Recycling Officer of the year is now under way! All you have to do to register, is nominate two students from either years 5 or 6, to run recycling activities in your school then submit your application on what you have been working on to the competition in April / May 2023. This year’s theme is upcycling.
You will be supported by a dedicated waste education officer who can come to your school and help with assemblies and other events.
Your school’s children will be gifted with books specifically designed for children in Cheshire East and your school will have the opportunity to win a visit from our mobile classroom!
Finalists will be invited to showcase their work at a special event in June 2023. Date and venue to be confirmed.
To register and be kept up to date on the competition, please contact Laura on 07971 763649 or email Laura.Demircan@ansa.co.uk.
You may also wish to make use of the range of waste reduction videos on the Cheshire East Waste Reduction Volunteers web page.
Where our recycling goes
What happens to your recycling and rubbish
The story of the little red chair
You can use the little red chair video to teach your school about recycling. The Junior Recycling Officers can read from the little red chair script (PDF, 145KB) while showing the video.
Junior Recycling Officers helped us create an assembly about recycling. You can write your own script and change it to suit your school.
Find out how to make gift boxes, wallets and bracelets from recycled materials using the instructions below.
You could use these posters to run a colouring competition in your school.
Love Food Hate Waste
7 million tonnes of food is thrown away every year. You could print off these posters and display them in your school.
