Low Moor Primary School visit railway to help with rubbish
11:05am Thursday 31st March 2011 in Low Moor
Pupils have been helping rail staff at Bradford Interchange sort through rubbish to learn more about recycling.
A group of 30 children at Low Moor Primary School visited the station to find out about waste management from Northern Rail staff and environmental charity Urban Miles.
Dr Karen Booth, head of sustainability at Northern Rail, said: “Our aim is to become the most carbon friendly rail operator in the UK, and we are well on our way to achieving this. Working with Urban Mines and Low Moor Primary School has shown how we can help influence future generations to help protect our environment.” The youngsters are now working on an art project with a recycling theme. Katylee Bailey, one of the pupils taking part in the scheme, said: “I have loved learning about all the things that happen at the station and finding out how we can encourage passengers to recycle more.”
