Waste Free Lunchbox policy
The Lough Neagh Discovery Centre has a policy of trying to generate as little waste as possible through our on site recycling programme. With this in mind visiting school children are encouraged, as far as is practicable, to bring a waste free lunch box for their visit. This includes:
• Using refillable bottles or flasks rather than cans or cartons.
• Putting sandwiches in a reusable container rather than a plastic bag, cling film or foil wrapper.
• Avoiding foods that have lots of packaging or that can’t be recycled.
• Bringing fruit or vegetables which are not only healthier but the left over cores and skins can be composted on site in our compost heap found in the wildlife garden.
