Site map

SCRIB Smart is an accreditation scheme that schools receive to prove they are a SCRIB Recycling Proficient School.

Schools simply have to match a set of recycling criteria and tell SCRIB they meet this criteria. Then SCRIB will process the application and if successful, the school receives a rather lovely framed accreditation certificate and letter confirming its SCRIB Smart status.

Earning SCRIB Smart status

A school has to meet a set series of criteria laid out by SCRIB to earn their SCRIB Smart accreditation:

  1. Each school has to recycle at least steel and another material of their choice
  2. The school must have taught a SCRIB learning resource or workshop
  3. The school has introduced an aspect around the environment to the school (e.g.) wildlife garden, sallotment, wind energy
  4. The school has an active recycling policy, such as on school books/ school uniform etc

What do schools receive?

A framed certificate to put towards any other schemes they will be doing, such as Eco Schools. A link to SCRIB Smart on the new SCRIB website, detailing them as a recycling champion. A press release or photograph on the award (if required).
