Recycler the rapping robot is touring Somerford Primary School on Monday 17 January at 1.30pm to spread the word about recycling.
School children will receive a visit from Recycler, who will be bringing
recycling to life through his funky interactive show.
The show tells pupils and teachers all about the three Rs: reduce, reuse
and recycle and yes, the robot really will perform a toe-tapping rap!
Throughout the performance, Recycler shows children how they can reduce their waste, how they can recycle locally, and put the three Rs into practice at home and school.
Kirsten Juniper, Dorset County Council’s waste education and projects
officer, said: "Every household in the UK throws away over one tonne of
waste each year and more than half of this could be recycled. A visit from Recycler is a great way for young people to learn about how important it is to reduce waste and to recycle as much as possible, at home and at school. Joining in with Recycler’s rap and watching the games, props and role-plays is a great way to remember important messages and take them home.”
The Recycler programme is brought to schools by Dorset County Council in partnership Waste Watch.
