Whole School Waste Audit

Whole School Waste Audit

On Thursday, the Green Team and Miss Cooke welcomed the team from the Wandsworth recycling centre to All Saints to carry out a Waste Audit of recycling and general rubbish from all around the school.   We were also joined by our science governor, Mr Geoff Green.   The children had a busy morning weighing, sorting and recording data about the many bags of rubbish we collected.   We will receive a full report when the team return to run workshops during Science Week, but generally we seen to be recycling most things correctly (the staffroom bins caused most concern as you can see from the photo!)

The main things we learnt are that plastic lids can now be recycled, the importance of rinsing plastic food and drink containers and that shredded paper cannot be recycled, but it can be composted!    We will share the final results and any other findings when we have them.
