R-Generation Schools Competition

Nestlé Waters, RECOUP and Wastebuster working together, have provided education resources for Primary (Key Stages 1 & 2) and Secondary (Key Stage 3) schools on plastics recycling and resources since 2010.  It is estimated that close to 30,000 pupils have attended assemblies and events, learning about and discovering how plastics are made and discovering the recycling journey of plastics packaging.           

The educational resources have been aligned with the  curriculum, giving schools confidence that they can easily be incorporated into the school academic programme. Engaging with the recyclers of tomorrow continues to be a priority including educating on the importance of keeping plastics out of the natural environment.  An important part of the programme has been for RECOUP and Nestlé Waters to receive feedback on how the schools themselves are tackling the issue of plastic packaging within their own environment and hearing ideas from staff and children on how litter could be reduced and recycling improved.  

R-Generation Recycling School Survey and Prize Draw 2019

For the academic year 2019/2020 the programme will include updated resource packs.   To help us finalise our research and make sure that the packs cover those aspects of this issue that you would wish to see covered we are asking for your help in answering a few questions about your school which will also allow us to discover the impact of recycling in your school.  We want to know your successes and gain your views.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, we look forward to receiving your feedback.

As a thank you for your support all schools will be entered into a PRIZE DRAW. Up to 10 schools will be chosen at random to receive a bonus resource pack of recycling information to share with their pupils.   These schools will also be invited to receive webinar assemblies and workshops linked to the resource packs. 

Two lucky schools within the Derbyshire County catchment will be given the opportunity to be chosen as the Nestlé Waters ‘Recycling Schools of Excellence’. Competition closes on 9th December 2019. 

Nestlé Waters, RECOUP and Wastebuster will offer these schools the opportunity to trial new recycling initiatives, take part in wider publicity, and host on site workshops and events for the schools across the area. This would all be arranged to dovetail with existing curricular activities to minimise impact and allow publicity opportunities to positively promote the school.
