No time to waste
MEEN will be working with six Manchester school communities across the 2021-2022 academic year. We begin the No Time to Waste project with a waste and recycling audit of each school in the areas of food waste; paper and card; glass, cans and plastic, textiles and WEEE.
Each school then creates an action plan dependent on which waste streams are most in need of reduction and dependent on the most appropriate solutions in each setting. MEEN would offer a selection of activities to help schools reduce their waste. Some options will make immediate waste savings whilst others work towards longer term solutions. Each school needs to take up at least two actions for a minimum of 20 weeks and keep a record the savings made. At the end of the programme the total savings will be declared followed by a discussion on how savings can be sustained in the school. This information will be shared and celebrated.
This project is funded by the Recycle for Greater Manchester Community Fund; a joint Recycle for Greater Manchester and SUEZ initiative accessed through the Greater Manchester Environment Fund.
