Dear Parents and Learners
Thank you so much for assisting us in our recycling drive. It has been operating successfully with the boys bringing in loads of items for recycling. However, we do need to add some do’s and don’ts to what is and what is not acceptable for recycling purely for hygienic, health and safety reasons.
It is recommended that you have a look at our dry waste column as to what is permissible for recycling.
Make certain that your dry waste is not soiled with food particles as these will attract all sorts of critters to the recycling area. A great way to get the boys involved is to get them to clean out the containers before it is been sent to school.
Leftover lunch items, sandwiches, fruits, yogurt, cheese, chips, breads, soups, milk, contaminated paper trays or pizza boxes, used paper towels and tissues.
Sweet/chocolate wrappers, bread packets, empty soda or water bottles, any type of paper, plastic wrap or packaging, books, magazines, cardboard, paperboard, soda cans and food tins.
What you should NOT be sending are wet waste (refer to the column).
Thank you for your cooperation and let’s become the school with the most successful recycling drive!
