Milner House Innovation in Recycling Education Centre Get A Quote
B&M Waste’s Recycling innovation Centre provides an interactive experience for schools, colleges and businesses alike to visit and learn about the very latest innovations in waste minimisation, reuse and recycling.
As a Carbon Neutral Waste Management company, we aim to educate children from a young age on the importance of recycling and making sustainable choices. Our Little Litter Pickers Programme was designed to educate future generations about the wider impact waste has on the environment.
Our Education Programme Leader, Maria Williams, has years of experience- previously working as a geography teacher in a local high school. Coupled with a BSc in Environmental Science and a passion for education and environmental protection.
Covering KS1 KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5, we have designed a range of educational, fun-filled and interactive days that can be tailored to each school’s individual needs.

“The trip was extremely interesting and just what we needed. All of the students enjoyed the session and found it very useful for their teaching. Hopefully they will be able to bring the children from their schools in the future.”
Gemma Billington- Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Primary School Leeds
“The assembly was very informative and interactive for the children. They really enjoyed the song and have been singing it all around school! Our Year 1 children had a great time during the litter pick with the superheroes- it will definitely encourage them to keep the environment tidy and to reduce, re-use and recycle!”
Student- Archbishop Blanch C of E High School
“We enjoyed our day very much. I learnt to reduce and reuse before recycling and how plastics damage our environment. I enjoyed creating new items from our waste and I will try to reduce the amount of products that I use in the future.”
