What a waste!

Reducing, reusing and recycling waste on farms

These activities have been designed for children who have visited a farm and have some knowledge of the kinds of waste found on farms.

They could also be used by classes that have not visited a farm for an official visit, for example in rural areas where children may have direct experience of farm waste issues. Alternatively the activities could be used as part of a topic on waste and linked to work on waste at school and home.
