Recycling Drive! Monday June 26th!!

Our Green Schools team have been hard at work this year tackling litter and waste.  We have been learning about the importance of recycling and how to recycle correctly.  We learned that some items are easier to recycle than others, and sometimes we must make an extra effort to recycle certain items correctly.  Items such as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).  WEEE is anything with a plug or battery and is at the end of its useful life.

Did you know that the average home has 193 electrical appliances and 110 batteries?!!   Many of us have WEEE items that no longer work so we decided to gather them all up and recycle them correctly!  This is where we need your help!

We would like all families to dig out any broken plug or battery-operated items such as bulbs, electric toothbrushes, mobile phones, pocket radios, keyboards, cables, batteries, chargers, small kitchen appliances like toasters and kettles, battery-operated books and toys etc.   Large household appliances will not be collected on the day.  The PDF listed here  might be a helpful guide to look at.  Please bring your items to the school hall on Monday 26th June for collection by RecycleIT .

Thank you!  The Green School Team.
