Otago schools and preschools did a great job diverting paper and cardboard from landfill in 2016. They have:
- Diverted 311 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- Prevented 1,678 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being produced in landfill
- Saved 2,486 cubic metres of landfill space
- Earned 1,300 native trees thanks to the Paper4Trees Scheme.
We at MAC have earned 32 trees in 2016. We planted 16 and decided to carry over the other 16 to add to our 2017 earned trees and organise a school-wide planting event in 2018.
Keep up the good work with recycling!
