The school fills in a full skip each week which costs $80 to empty, plus the weight of rubbish (nearly $200 per tonne!).
80% of the skip content can be recycled.
And recycling is free! So the idea is to remove the recycling from the skip.
3 bin types
There is now a yellow (recycling) bin next to each rubbish bin in the college.
Some large red crates 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 in the yellow bins outside.
Lastly, large grey or green wheelie bins will receive the rubbish that goes to landfill.
What to recycle
If we divert a third of rubbish to the recycling, we’ll save $2100 per year.
Just put rubbish in the right bin!
