Recycling For adults with learning disability and mental health needs
Join the green eco team! Doing our bit to save the planet.


At Freedom HQ we generate a lot of waste. Fortunately for us and our planet most of it can be recycled. Instead of throwing it away and filling our planet with rubbish we can sort through it and take it to a recycling centre. From there it can be issued to companies who will re-use it and make it into another useful products for us to use again.

You will learn how to identify the things we can recycle at Freedom HQ, how to sort them into different types of materials like plastics, metals and cardboard and when we have enough we take these to the recycling centre. There we put them all in the correct containers ready to be used again.

We are living on this planet as if we had another one to go to
