DiGBY is on a mission to keep Ipswich clean, but he can’t do it on his own!

It takes a lot of helping hands to tackle litter, including our children and young people. That’s why we think it is so important to teach them about waste and the impact it has on the world we live in.

Below are a collection of resources to help deliver waste education in school.   

Did you know we can provide free educational visits to schools in Ipswich? To find out what’s on offer and whether we can visit your school, please email:

For more information about waste and recycling in and out of the classroom, visit Suffolk Recycling.
