Devon Waste Education Team
The Devon Waste Education Programme is an essential part of Devon County Council’s long term strategy to achieving a more sustainable future, with an increasing emphasis on waste minimisation, resource management and greater awareness of the issues surrounding consumerism. The project supports schools and their families to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost their waste through a range of workshops and activities. The programme is funded by Devon County Council and delivered by Resource Futures.
