Free internal blue recycling bags and Spacebuddy recycling/refuse bins will also be available to order and educational bin displays, posters, stickers and other resources will be on show for teachers to request.

Teachers are encouraged to bring to the sessions any suggestions for further lending kits or any questions they have regarding what West Lothian Council Waste Services can do to help their school teach children about waste and recycling.
