Recycling show for pupils

A THEATRE group is using performance to highlight the importance of recycling to pupils at schools across the county.

Gibber Theatre Company is behind the performances, aimed at Year 8 pupils.

The show will be performed at Ilkeston School on Monday April 4.

Derbyshire County Councillor John Allsop, cabinet member for technology and recycling, said: “The performance is all about the issues and attitudes surrounding waste and recycling.

“It is a dynamic and very entertaining way of encouraging pupils to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste and forms part of our wider strategy to increase recycling in Derbyshire.”

Workshops are held after the performance with Year 8 pupils.
