Recycling Video

the students pitched to the team, showing the outline of a video about recycling with the key messages of

  • Clean recycling

  • No rubbish

  • Plastics 1 and 2 only – look for the number

  • The different types of glass


They intend the video to be 1-2 minutes long and it will involve staff sorting recycling into the correct bins or rubbish bag. They are going to get some of the younger staff from the Arena to make it more appealing to younger people to watch.
