Recycling Credits

We were fortunate that the end of our playground was accessible to the public and could be sectioned off from the area where the children play. It was an ideal site for our recycling centre.

Not many other schools would be able to do this, which is a shame, because the educational, enviromental and monetary benefits have proved to be well worth the effort of setting it up.

I've just been sent details of the recycling credits that we shall receive from Babergh District Council, for each tonne of glass, paper and textiles that is collected from our centre. (£30.86, £35.46 and £145.46 respectively). This usually amounts to about £1,000.00 a year.

At the moment, cartridge recycling is not as profitable as it used to be, however, with support from Takeback Ltd., this scheme still raises a lot of funds for our pupils.
