New Recycling container at school
Dear Parents and Carers,
You may have noticed that today we took delivery of a textile recycling container in our front car park. This is part of our school recycling commitment which our Eco Council and Mrs Miller are leading on.
This recycling facility is for the whole school community to use and the school will benefit financially from the textiles that are collected (weight = income).
As you will appreciate, initiatives such as this come with Terms and Conditions. The key points for us are what can and can not be placed in the container. This information will be listed below.
Please feel free to use the facility at the beginning and end of the school day. The container will be emptied every fortnight. Please do not leave textiles on the ground (if the container is full) as the company will not receive wet goods.
Thank you in advance for supporting this project.
