ISL & Ulidia Tackle Plastic Waste with BBC
We were incredibly proud to be featured in a recent BBC Schools report, along with the amazing Eco Team from Ulidia Integrated College.
Northern Ireland’s First Zero Waste to Landfill School
We have been working with Ulidia for a number of years, helping them to ensure that all of their waste is responsibly dealt with. Nothing goes to landfill.
We also engage with the school – teaching staff and pupils – on an educational basis. Raising awareness about issues such as plastic waste, litter and the circular economy.
Highlighting Plastic Waste
Plastic waste is becoming an ever bigger problem for our planet. Around 5 million tonnes of plastic is discarded in the UK each year. Most families bin approximately 40kg of plastic per year, which could otherwise be recycled.
In this recent BBC Schools report Ulidia’s Eco team have researched the global issue, examining ways in which they can reduce their carbon footprint and plastic use.
The students also discussed a recent project, which saw them being teamed with a school eco group in Madagascar, who have also been focussing on beach cleans and litter picking events.
How ISL Waste Management Can Help
We work with schools, community groups, local businesses and national companies to help them reduce their waste problem. We streamline processes and aim to reduce waste at source, then move to encourage reuse and recycling. Our last option is to send waste for energy recovery.
We can usually help organisations save money on their waste costs, while also helping them divert everything they bin from landfill.
