We warmly thank:
- EERST for creating this wonderful opportunity,
- Jo Guest for setting it in MAC,
- Wastebusters for collecting the paper bales,
- the caretakers who have to follow-up, sorry !
- and everybody who DOES put used paper in the Paper recycling boxes.
The Paper4Trees programme that was created by EERST in 2001 has planted over 22,000 trees to date. For every tonne of paper and cardboard that is recycled:
- 13.5 trees are saved
- 5000 litres of water are saved
- The equivalent of 5.4 tonnes of C02 are not released
In 2008, we recycled 12 wheelie bins and 55 fadges, which corresponds to 20 trees.
We are still part of the programme in 2009, so we keep encouraging Paper Recycling in the college.
