Eco School Project 1 "Litter"
Recycling at North Leigh
The Eco Council's first project this term focuses on litter: reducing litter and improving recycling. To help us with this, the school parliament wrote a questionnaire to ask their classes. They wanted to know what the barriers were to pupils recycling their litter. They discovered that some children were unsure where to find the fruit bins outside and unaware of the school's capacity to recycle their snack wrappers. This meant pupils were throwing recyclable waste in the general rubbish bin or taking it home. The school parliament decided to create a designated recycling container for each class for children to place their empty wrappers at the end of break times. These will be emptied into the correct recycling containers in the shed each Friday by the class school parliament representatives during Friday breaktime. They will be supervised by our eco school ambassadors who will advise if any class waste is not yet recyclable under our current Terracycle scheme. The school parliament also made this Powerpoint to show their classes. They wanted to raise awareness of what can be recycled and where to find the different containers. The School Parliament led the Celebration Assembly on Friday 18th October to share their findings of the Litter Questionnaires and launch the Class Recycling Containers.
