About Renewi’s Educational Outreach Programme :
Renewi is one of the largest providers of local authority waste services in the UK. Renewi work in partnership with Wakefield Council to manage the district’s waste and have built a state of the art new waste treatment facility which helps to reduce landfill, recycle more and create sustainable energy.
As part of the contract between Renewi and Wakefield Council we run a waste education programme which aims to educate the local community about the importance of recycling and caring for the environment. We have a purpose built education centre in South Kirkby where we deliver educational events for schools and communities and also go out to visit local groups to deliver interactive workshops and talks. Last year we delivered 144 events across the Wakefield area and worked with over 4500 people. The scope of the programme is broad, we work with adult groups, primary schools, secondary schools, scouts, guides, groups with learning disabilities and anyone who may value from our work. We also run a number of specific campaigns throughout the year which are targeted around specific issues.
