School Visits


A big thank you to Ysgol Heol Goffa, they created this wonderful collage out of recycled materials. They kindly donated to CWM Environmental for display.


We currently operate a recycling collection to all of the schools within Carmarthenshire. Children are actively encouraged to act responsibly with their waste and to recycle, recover and reuse as much as possible. We recognize that educating and involving children about the importance of looking after the world in which we all live today will lead to their sustainable future.



Any schools interested in organising a visit to our MRF should in the first instance contact Carmarthenshire County Council who will explain health, safety and welfare arrangements prior to contacting CWM to make arrangements.

Ysgol Gynradd Talyllychau

May we all here at Talley Scholl thank you very much for arranging our visit to the recycling centre in Johnstown recently. We all found the visit very informative, and very helpful in our venture to promote recycling in our school and the community. It was a thoroughly enjoyable visit...

Pontarddulais Comprehensive School

Thank you very much for guided tour of recycling plant. Pupils have returned to school with new vigour for collecting rubbish and general recycling…

Tumble Primary School

A big thankyou to everyone at the Recycling Centre in Carmarthen from Tumble primary School

Ysgol Tre-Gib

…All the pupils enjoyed themselves and everyone now appreciates the need to recycle and do their bit…

Ferryside Voluntary Controlled Primary School

…We learnt a great deal about what can be recycled and we’ve produced leaflets showing what we’ve learnt…

St Michaels School, Llanelli

We received ‘Thank You’ letters from all pupils who visited. One pupil wrote, “Thank you for our trip to the recycling centre. In school we have worked out how many trees are cut down in Carmarthen, it is 1750 trees. After this trip I have learned a lot and will recycle more at home. In school we have started to recycle more…”

Dyffryn Taf School

Just a brief note to say thank you for your help, despite their quietness (pre exam fatigue?) the students clearly found the visit both enjoyable and thought provoking

Johnstown C P School

I just wanted to say a big thank you for making my recent visit to the recycling centre a great success. My class children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the recycling sorting process and learnt a lot of facts…

Daffryn Taf School

On behalf of our year 11 group Asdan group we would like to thank you for our recent tour around the recycling centre. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we learnt a lot. The best bit was looking at the baler and how it worked. I did not realize how much rubbish gets recycled. As a group we will be doing everything we can to influence other pupils in the school to change their ways and do far more recycling…

Ysgol Heol Goffa

…Your warm welcome made us feel at home, your exciting Centre filled us with amazement, and the vision and the dedication given by you also astounded us…We also thank you for recycling our school waste and for the work you are doing for the community on our behalf. I am really glad that the children saw and (partly) understood what happens to our recycling when it leaves school…Not only was it an education for the children, but it was an eye opener for us as well. I shall certainly be more aware of the things I can recycle at home…

Pembroke Comprehensive School

…The pupils have talked about what they learned constantly since they came back and were amazed at what they thought they knew, but didn’t, about recycling…

Ysgol Y Gwendraeth

Received from a pupil, “Thank you for letting me come to see where all my recycling goes. I really liked seeing all the cans squashed together. Thank you for a nice day.”

Dafen C P School

The members of Dafen Eco-Council learned a lot about recycling and realized that by recycling we are doing a lot more for the environment than we thought we were. The tour around the yard was very intresting, and we found out what happens to the blue and black bags we use. The picking line looked like a lot of very hard work and I think most of our Eco Council thought machines did this job…
