The Birchanger Recycling Centre

Recycling Update

Thank you so much for your continued support with our recycling projects. We are now becoming quite well-known across the community and many members of the public are now dropping off their waste with us. As a result, of our recycling centre being so popular it is becoming quote a bog job to keep on top of! Please carry on brining in your recycling but can we recommend that you follow these tips to help the school councillors and myself when sorting it out:

· Ensure all packets are empty (including crisps, toothpaste and beauty products).

· Ensure all items are being placed into the correctly labelled boxes in the foyer (if these are full please place neatly at the bottom of the trolley).

· If you bring your recycling in carrier bags, please empty the carrier bags and take them with you to be re-used again.

· Finally, please see the photograph instructions for the best way to bring in your snack packets. We can only send off a huge 5kg of crisp packets at a time for Teracycle to credit our account, that is approximately 3,000 crisp packets so we must make sure they are very compact and compressed to fit them into the boxes.

  Please remember:

  • Flatten your empty crisp packets as much as possible
  • Fold them in half
  • Place them into a larger crisp packet until it is full
  • Your packet should be full but fairly flat

 

We have just sent off another shipment to Terracycle and will know our new totals soon.
