The Community Fund has been established to reduce household waste, benefit local communities and ensure value for money for council tax payers.

The project with work with 10 Primary schools across the St Helens borough, the children of the schools will learn about recycling through informal education methods using arts & crafts, drama, improvisation, games and physical activity. The children will record what they recycle at home at the first workshop and what they recycle at home by the third workshop.
