[C]opeland’s recycling team visited the children of St James’ Pre-School in Whitehaven to teach them about the importance of recycling.
Around 25 youngsters were able to explore the waste vehicle and hear how recycling works and why it is important.
Councillor Dave Banks, portfolio holder for customers and communities said: “We think it’s vital to educate young people about the importance of looking after the environment. We are working with schools to get the message across about how important recycling is – and they are really responding well.”
Copeland residents are reminded that black recycling boxes are still collected over the festive period, and any amount of glass, paper and tins/cans can be put out. If you require a black box or have any questions regarding waste and recycling the council can be contacted on 01946 598300 or at [email protected].
