Year 5 Trip to Padworth Recycling Centre

I really enjoyed the trip to the recycling centre as I learned a lot of interesting things. I learned if you don’t recycle what really happens to your waste, and I learned the difference between landfill and compost.

We watched the trunks coming in on the CCTV cameras and the waste being separated. We also did some activities where we learned that jackets can be made from plastic bottles! At the end of the trip we got a goody bag with a pencil, a sharpener (both made from recycled materials) and a pack of strawberry seeds. The visit has definitely changed my future. It will make me recycle more because if I do not it causes Global Warming. It was a really fun trip!
