Working with pioneering waste management company, ACM Environmental Plc, Oasis Academy pupils and staff took part in a number of activities during the day long Roadshow as the school launched their new waste segregation initiative.  This initiative will see the school achieve a whopping 85% recycling rate in comparison to the 100% waste to recovery statistics the school were previously achieving.

 

The Roadshow was the brainchild of ACM Environmental who are helping the School on their journey to zero waste to landfill by installing new internal and external bins with clear signage to show what can be placed in each of them.  A fun and engaging video explaining the initiative was shown to pupils and staff and a number of activities took place during the day to encourage the correct use of the bins.

 

Speaking of the Roadshow, ACM Environmental’s Operations Director, Travis Way, said “We are delighted to be working closely with the staff and pupils at Oasis Academy as they become environmental champions.  It was great to see everyone enjoying the Roadshow and embracing the new waste segregation methods.  We are looking forward to working with more children at other Oasis sites across the region.”

 

Principal of Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey, Tina Lee, said “Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey is committed to improving the environment for our young people and the community in which we live.  As educators, we have a responsibility to make our young people aware of the impact our daily waste has on our planet.  We are  really pleased that ACM will help us to deliver this message and provide us with the tools to enable us to improve our recycling and regeneration.  The students and staff at the academy will support the recycling scheme and are looking forward to a partnership in the year ahead. It is pleasing that many students already make good use of the mixed recycling bins we have so far been provided.  We will continue to improve our knowledge and understanding further to reduce our waste and build a cleaner academy environment.  In doing so, we will equip our young people with an awareness for an eco-friendlier future.”

 

ACM Environmental has worked with a great many schools over the years and it is always a delight to see the enthusiasm youngsters have for embracing environmental initiatives both at school and in their homes.
