We have been very busy this term putting in place our new practices of reducing our litter and waste in our school. The committee have worked very hard in their posts as litter picker and litter warden. Classrooms are winning the “Litter Free Trophy” award each week and it encourages the continuous practice of keeping their classroom litter free.
We carried out a recycling audit in April. The purpose was to ensure all classes are recycling the correct materials. We categorised and counted the materials in each bin.
|5th/6th||37||26||5||Wet/used tissue x13
Contaminated paper x34
Baby wipe x1
Used/greasy tissue x17
Contaminated paper x1
Whiteboard markers x2
From our results; the committee members reinforced to each class the importance of recycling and items that are only allowed into the recycling bin.
It clearly shows that regular audits continue to support and reduce litter and waste in our school.
