Sweden: Wasteyard Safaris

By May 2022July 14th, 2022No Comments

Classes in all cohorts may book a Wasteyard safari. The classes are bussed out to a sorting yard where the children can discover the sorting yard’s “Big Five”. The idea of these sorting yard safaris is for the children to learn in a fun way about recycling, waste, sorting at source, the cycle and what people can contribute to improving the environment.

Wasteyard Safaris has been running since the start of the MOST project and will continue in 2022. Until 2021, around 20 classes have participated in our SCPs and learned more about how we can improve the environment, valuable knowledge that children hopefully carry with them throughout life.
