Dr Hal's Recycling Trump Cards000300
by Dr Hal
Dr Hal's Recycling Trumps is a trumps-style game with 32 recyclable items as the subject of the game. This is an ideal way of getting children to learn about recycling through play, and maps directly onto Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum. There is a picture of each item and some recycling factoids on the card to engage players’ curiosity and provide some takeaway learning outcomes. Dr Hal’s Recycling Trumps is printed on 100% recycled card and the printer is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council. The research for the cards was carried out by Dr Ryan Woodard, Research Fellow in the Waste and Energy Research Group at a leading UK University so you can be sure of the intellectual credibility of the game. The Trump factors are: Total Waste Generated (UK Tonnes) Recycled Average Commodity Price (UK/£) Green Factor (see explanation below) Ease of Recycling (see explanation below) The 32 Recyclable Items are: • 1 Plastics - PET (Polyethyleneterephthalate) • Type 2 Plastics - HDPE (High Density Polythethylene) • Type 3 Plastics - PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) • Type 4 Plastics - LDPE (Low Density Polythethylene) • Type 5 Plastics – Polypropylene • Type 6 Plastics - PS (Polystyrene) • Lead Aluminium Drinks Cans • Steel Food Cans • Mobile phones • Cooking oil • Newspapers • Clothes • Green Glass • Clear Glass • Brown Glass • Garden waste • Computers & IT equipment • Aluminium Foil • Tyres • Paper • Drinks Cartons • Paper and Cardboard • CDs & DVDs • Cars & Car Parts • Paint • Food • Engine Oil • Waste Electrical Goods (WEEE) • Wood • Ink Cartridges • Batteries • Yellow Telephone Directories Trump Factors: ‘Green Factor’ is out of 10, and relates to the benefit of diverting that waste material away from landfill.
