As part of our pledge to be more environmentally friendly we have signed up to TerraCycle. This is a great scheme where companies and individuals collect hard-to-recycle waste. With most packed lunches containing a sandwich, crisps and confectionery, the chances are that these items are purchased in non-recyclable plastic (a list of items can be found on TerraCycle’s website here). TerraCycle recycles these items by converting into plastic pellets for reuse or up-cycles them into a range of products like furniture. Our intention will be to have a container in each school dinner hall where children (and teachers) will have the opportunity to drop their hard-to-recycle packaging into our container. We will collect each term, sort and send off to TerraCycle ourselves or use local drop-off locations.
