Today we emptied out the recycling bin to look what was in it. It was very disappointing. The bin was really stinky because people had been putting fruit and milk cartons in it. The milk cartons had dripped into the bottom of the bin, soaked into some paper and started to rot and go mouldy. It really was a bad smell. We could smell it all last week, but didn’t know what it was.
|Things that don't belong in the paper recycling bin...|
Milk Cartons -
These need to go in the blue milk recycling bins. They need to be empty, folded and squished first.
Packets, Glad Wrap, etc -
These need to be taken home to be disposed of. It may be possible to reuse zippy sandwich bags. The best solution would be not to bring packet food to school at all!
Food Scraps -
We now have pig buckets at school. All food scraps need to be put in these buckets. No plastic or foil.
Lunch Order Waste -
If you have a lunch box with you, put the rubbish in it and take it home. If you don’t have a lunchbox, put it in the rubbish bin.
Paper and Card -
Put it in the recycling bin. Do not crumple. No paper or card that has food or grease on it. No paper towels or tissues.
