Can crushing machine



School pupils can find out about the environment and recycling as well as getting hands on sorting paper on a visit to Crow Recycling.

Here at Crow Recycling we offer educational visits. The visits are ideal for classes learning about recycling and the environment or for pupils working on art projects using waste materials.

Pupils will see how drinks cans are sorted, crushed and baled for recycling. They will try their hands at sorting paper ready for recycling. And they will see how paper is shredded and baled to reuse as packaging material and animal bedding. They can also visit the Scrapstore to find out how waste materials can be reused for arts and crafts.

The visits are available on Mondays and Tuesdays during Coventry term time. One class is the maximum for a visit. If more would like to visit we suggest splitting the group in two and organising two separate visits. This gives everyone chance to see the machinery in action and have a go at paper sorting.

We host visits on Mondays and Tuesdays during Coventry term times. We can accommodate one class of up to 30 children at a time.

Visits cost £30 per class with reductions for schools which want to send three or more classes.

For classes which can’t travel to the Crow warehouse in Hillfields Crow can send a representative to schools in Coventry and Warwickshire to give talks about recycling and the environment.

Crow also offers work experience placements for secondary school pupils with special needs.

School visits and work experience placements are led by staff and volunteers with Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
