At school, we recycle
Paper and cardboard
Plastic bottles and cans
We make compost from food waste for use in our vegetable garden.
Our Eco team makes snap checks of the class and office bins at regular intervals and rewards the class with the least amount of recyclable or compostable materials in their general waste.
In the last few years, we have run a Christmas card recycling scheme in January, collecting and counting Christmas cards in school. These have then been delivered to the M&S Christmas Card Recycling Scheme, which plants a tree for every 1,000 cards collected. We usually collect enough for 4 or 5 trees!
