Recycling in Schools Education (RISE) project works with local schools throughout Derbyshire Dales to support recycling education. We have a variety of workshops, lessons and interactive activities on offer for schools in the District led by our Recycling Advisor and Parks and Street Scene Team.
For more information on the activities available, to discuss your school's needs or book a date please complete the online interest form and a member of our team will be in touch with you shortly.
We have been using the Derbyshire County Council roadshow vehicle for a number of years to get out and about in the Derbyshire Dales to promote waste reduction and recycling. We can visit your school with the vehicle and we'll be able to provide advice about local recycling and home composting options, provide games and activities for children and even display items made from recycled goods - such as a fleece jacket made from recycled bottles! To request the roadshow vehicle, please indicate this on the online interest form when booking your visit. We will check the availability of the vehicle and will let you know whether it is possible for us to bring the vehicle during our visit.
