Recycle Right!

Free activities and teaching resources to help kids learn tips and tricks on how to 'Recycle Right'.


Waste Warriors: Yellow Bin Lesson

In this interactive e-learning lesson (lesson 5 of our Waste Warriors E-Learning module), students will learn what our household yellow bin is for, what can and can’t go in it, and what happens to the stuff in our yellow bin once it’s collected. This lesson includes videos, picture-match-up’s, and a find-a-word. Ask students to complete the whole lesson or integrate activities into your own planning.
