The Waste Trade Company, a recycling company based in Port Elizabeth, is once again holding the Schools Recycling Project, and has released the results of the top recycling schools for the first term of 2016.
“Since the start of The Schools Project in 2009, The Waste Trade Company has since signed up 180 schools in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, with the project being built on the following principle: ‘Tell me and I'll forget, show me and I may not remember, involve me and I'll understand’,” the company says.
It adds; “The Schools Project visit schools to teach the children about recycling and waste separation not only by show and tell, but by involving the children in the process.
