KWD launches schools ini­tia­tive

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By TADHG EVANS

FOL­LOW­ING on from the suc­cess of the “KWD Kids Re­cy­cling” pro­gramme in 2010, KWD Re­cy­cling re­launched its “Re­cy­cle Right” ini­tia­tive this week in the hope of boost­ing un­der­stand­ing of re­cy­cling amongst pri­mary school teach­ers and stu­dents.

The launch took place with a fun-filled waste and re­cy­cling work­shop in Fossa Na­tional School this week, and KWD aims to visit all of the county’s pri­mary schools in the months ahead, with an eye to pro­mot­ing cor­rect, re­spon­si­ble re­cy­cling in schools and homes.

Each stu­dent re­ceived a KWD “Re­cy­cle Right” book­let con­tain­ing fun facts and in­for­ma­tion and quizzes about waste and re­cy­cling, andd a per­sonal cer­tifi­cate for at­tend­ing the work­shop.

“It is im­por­tant to teach peo­ple about the lat­est re­cy­cling prac­tices and where bet­ter to start than with the younger gen­er­a­tion,” a KWD spokesper­son said this week.

“It was clear from the ex­pres­sions on the chil­dren’s faces that the work­shop was a great suc­cess. They were very en­thu­si­as­tic to learn about waste and re­cy­cling, through in­for­ma­tive videos de­tail­ing the process of what hap­pens to what you place into each bin, and what hap­pens to the dif­fer­ent types of waste that come back to the re­cy­cling fa­cil­ity.”
