The work suggested in this Nuffield Working with Science unit helps to make students aware of the inevitable need to recycle materials and of the practical and economic difficulties in the way of doing more at the moment.
Guidance for teachers and technicians appears in Teachers’ Notes A.
The unit was revised and republished for the CPVE edition of the project in the 1980s. Guidance for this version appears in the Tutors’ Handbook.
