Why not offer a recycling service for things like printer cartridges, tools or glasses?
Scouts can work towards their badge by taking part in a recycling challenge with our partner Recycle Now.
Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
