Children from Rushton Primary School learned all about the recycling business when they paid a visit to our Rushton depot. The group of 25 pupils aged between 7 and 9 years old travelled the short distance from school as part of a project to help develop their sense of community and understanding of the impact they have on the environment. We carried out special risk assessments and preparations to accommodate the youngsters and provided hi-vis vests and hard hats for a special tour of the transfer station and recycling facilities.
Children saw first hand the workings of the picking shed and watched as waste was moved onto a trammel. There was also a show of agility from a big CAT 360º excavator – which was a big hit.
