    I have got a grant of £500 to spend on recycling in my primary school. What would be suitable recycling projects within this budget? I would appreciate if anybody can share their experience of purchasing any relevant resources for recycling in their Primary school. How successful the project was?

    Not sure if this is any good, but on my website beside the teaching resources we offer, we sometimes have useful articles, companies tell us about their projects and competitions they have on and we help them spread the word. We have helped companies like Duracell, Kellogg's and Colgate, so big companies. We have recently added an article about an exciting recycling education project in partnership with British Glass and Friends of Glass about recycling glass. The project has quite a few downloads to help you, might be a good project for you to take on.

    Here is the link to the articles page where you will find it, it will tell you more and provide a link to register if you want to.

    In addition to the things you said you'd do when you applied for grant, you could purchase compost bins and a wormery for dealing with waste vegetable matter.
    You could buy a can crusher to help you reduce the bulk of cans you collect prior to sending them off for recycling.
    Waste minimisation could also be part of your work.
