Moorside School Junior Wardens Visit SUEZ Recycling

 

 

 

 

 

A massive Thank You SUEZ recycling and recovery UK – Kirklees

On Tuesday 4 March the Junior Wardens from Moorside Community Primary School visited SUEZ recycling and recovery UK – at Kirklees along with Community Warden Lee Ackroyd and Karen Scanlon form the North Halifax Partnership who runs the scheme.

The visit included education and learning experience at Diamond Road,  Huddersfield HD1 6BZ recycling facility.

The experience allowed the Junior Wardens to learn what happens to recyclable and non-recyclable waste and explore the recycling facility and see first-hand the processes at work to see how the technology is being used to ensure that the waste is being put to good use.

Included in the visit the wardens looked at materials for recycling that are collected from households and businesses around the UK and how waste can be treated in a number of ways. These materials include paper, plastic, cans and glass. Even the way it is collected can vary. The type of treatment depends on the types of recycling and waste, all of which are treated in different ways.

If the materials are mixed together, they are taken to a materials recycling facilities to be sorted before being baled and sent on to reprocessors be made into new products
Composting is the oldest form of recycling organic material. Composting is the biological process by which various micro-organisms break down this organic matter to create a substance that can then be used as a fertiliser and soil conditioner, helping new plants to grow.

Organic materials, such as food and garden waste, make up a significant part of household waste and most can be composted.

General waste, also called residual waste, is material from businesses and households that cannot be recycled. It includes materials such as non-recyclable plastics, polythene, some packaging and kitchen scraps. The wardens learnt that historically, this waste has invariably been disposed of in landfill sites and some general waste is still disposed of this way. However, advances in technology now mean that there are several alternative ways of dealing with general waste, which can ensure that value – usually in the form of energy – is recovered from it. The wardens was lucky enough to look in the furness fire of the residual waste

The whole visit was really enjoyable and very interesting with lots of Wow factors for the Junior Wardens anyone interested in how SUEZ recycling and recovery please click on the link

Everything’s Coming up Roses – or Daffodils – at Moorside School

Moorside Community Primary School, Ovenden, planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs on Thursday 6 December 2018 that will show a sea of yellow when spring arrives.

The Junior Wardens planted the border areas along the driveway of the newly built school at Keighley Road, Ovenden, creating great displays that will go on for years to come.

With help from The North Halifax Partnership, CMBC Community Warden and Calderdale Council’s Safer Cleaner Greener Team who worked alongside the Junior Wardens from Moorside Community Primary School in the planting and management of their local environment.

Pete Oddy Area Manager –SCG Neighbourhoods Team said  “Spring bulbs can provide a really impressive, long lasting display which makes a fantastic addition to any mixed herbaceous border, providing a burst of colour weeks before the earliest perennials begin to emerge and prior to the season getting going as the daffodils begin to take centre stage. Planting a mixture of these early and later flowering bulbs means they can be enjoyed by all with a mass of colour right through until April.”
