The website provides plenty of easy-to-access facts and information about waste created by London's households and the importance of recycling to help achieve a sustainable environment and economy.

Tom Brake said:

"It is important to ensure that today's young people become the energy behind the recycling efforts of tomorrow. This interactive website is an impressing teaching tool which will raise students' awareness about recycling and environmental sustainability."

The site is written by education and curriculum specialists and is designed to be used as a twelve-week teaching programme or for stand alone lesson plans by teachers.
