Children's University

Gillmoss Recycling Discovery Centre is an official learning destination.

We have teamed up with the Children's University to inspire young people to learn more about their impact on our environment.

The Passport to Learning programme encourages students to collect points if they take part in activities and workshops. Once enough points are earned, children will be awarded a certificate and take part in a graduation ceremony at a nearby university.
