Eco–Schools Recycling Project 25 June 2018

Eco–Schools Recycling Project a ‘Wheelie Big’ Success

Eco–Schools across Belfast were invited to present their final findings and actions for this year’s Wheelie Big Challenge run by Eco–Schools and Belfast City Council. The project saw pupils from 36 Belfast schools investigate and engage in practical actions to reduce waste, and particularly food waste, in school and at home by reducing, reusing and recycling. Shortlisted schools where invited to Belfast City Hall to present their work to a panel of judges.

St Michael’s Primary School Primary School took first place in the Primary category; second in the same category were St Anne’s Primary School and third place Blackmountain Primary. St Mary’s Christian Brother’s Grammar School took the top spot in the Post Primary category. St Maria Goretti Nursery took first place in the Nursery category with St Peter’s Nursery and Good Shepherd Nursery coming runners up.

Shortlisted schools attending set up brilliant displays highlighting the work they had undertaken for the Wheelie Big Challenge which included everything from worms to welly–boot planters. Some schools had moved from having no recycling in school to having as much as 80% of their rubbish recycled by the end of the Challenge and many introduced wormeries, composting and brown bin collections to tackle food waste.
