Get Gaskells waste services for schools, colleges and universities

Whatever level of education you deliver, Gaskells’ recycling collection service can help create joined-up waste management for universities, college campuses, secondary and primary schools alike.

Our free initial site audit means there’s no obligation when you make a first enquiry. We already work with educators across the North West and Wales to reduce waste, increase recycling rates and make sure recyclable materials are stored and collected safely where there may be young children around.

We can also make sure your recycling bin collection dates and times are convenient for you. That may mean collections only happen when pupils are not there or outdoor areas are not in use.

School waste recycling provides learning opportunities for all

A good school waste recycling strategy can have many benefits. Not only does it help to make waste management in schools more efficient, it also creates teaching opportunities.

Pupils become aware of issues relating to sending school waste to landfill, the different types of recycling services for education providers, and how those issues apply to their home lives.

This means a good school recycling strategy helps the education sector to be kinder to the environment and also teaches eco-friendly practice to pupils when they go home at the end of the day.

The direct savings to be achieved through a better education waste management strategy are impressive too. Up to 22 kg of waste is generated per secondary pupil and 45 kg per primary pupil in each academic year, according to figures from Recycle Now.

By identifying sustainable waste management opportunities, you save money, while ensuring you reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible of the materials your school produces.

School recycling strategies that involve pupils

A well planned school recycling strategy can make sure that pupils are involved and engaged with the process of reducing school waste and especially with reducing education waste sent to landfill.

Keep Britain Tidy’s Eco-Schools initiative encourages schools to make sure pupils are fully involved with environmental activities like reducing school waste.

It is designed in line with Ofsted rules for working with the community and as part of a wider global initiative spanning 67 countries. In a Schools and Sustainability report, Ofsted said:

“A key element is the involvement of pupils in the whole process, including monitoring, action planning and decision making, leading to ownership of the programmes and an increase in their sense of responsibility to the environment and the local area.”

“I employed Gaskell Waste Services Ltd to takeover the collection of refuse from our school back in April this year. I have been totally happy with the service we have received so far and would recommend the company to anyone thinking of changing collectors or starting anew. I have found the customer service first class and any requests I have made have been acted upon immediately.”

Education waste disposal that supports learning goals

At Gaskells Waste Disposal we understand the need for your education recycling strategy to support your pupils’ learning goals.

We offer a free site audit to customers in the education sector, so we can create a waste removal and recycling strategy that makes sense for you and your pupils.

All types of waste are included in this, from paper and card waste to printer ink cartridges and toner, plus ancillary waste streams like food waste from on-site kitchens.

We can supply the types and sizes of recycling bins you need to store all of the waste generated by your school. This again gives you a comprehensive platform you can use at the core of your environmental teaching activities.

And we provide full documentation of the amount of waste collected from your premises for recycling. You can use this to show pupils how much of your school’s waste is no longer being sent to landfill.
