Recycling to another level!

Recycling_signThe school fills in a full skip each week which costs $80 to empty + the weight of rubbish!
75% comes from classrooms, the rest from the wheelie bins.

The idea is to remove the recycling from the skip.

Some large red  bins with a clear sign RECYCLE have been placed in many classes and soon in all of them. It is the teacher’s responsibility to send students to empty them behind the library when full (dispatched in the right bins). So far, it is done well.
There are currently 26 green rubbish bins and only 5 yellow recycling bins.
We suggest that all bins go in pairs. So we need more yellow ones, possibly smaller ones, but they need a lid. We’ll ask the college management if we can get 10 more and we will try and find sponsors for more.

Team Green will promote recycling in the college.

Creating visuals (photos, videos?), talking in assembly, in year levels, making posters, in the newsletter…

If we divert a third of rubbish to the recycling, we’ll save $2100 per year.
