in 2020 our Year 6 Environmental Committee will be offering the following recycling services to our school community.
Greenbatch Foundation partners with schools allowing students to collect their old PET plastic bottles through recycling, providing PET which is used in research and development for 3D printer filament. By recycling through Greenbatch we can save plastic from entering landfills, oceans and waste incinerators.
Our green and purple Greenbatch bins will be placed in the undercover area on Wednesday mornings. You are very welcome and encouraged to bring in your HDPE and PET plastics. PET plastic is the type found in drink bottles and food packaging such as strawberry punnets or peanut butter jars, and has the number 1 inside the recycling symbol.
We will also continue to offer our battery collection. The yellow battery bin will be placed out in the undercover area on Wednesday morning along with the Greenbatch bins. Please bring along your unwanted batteries and place them in the bin. Once the bin is 3/4 full we contact the City of Gosnells and the batteries are taken away for recycling.
If you bring your batteries or plastics to school on any other day you will find both the yellow bins and the purple bins parked up by Learning Hub.
Thank you for your continuing support and to our students for their efforts and contributing towards the health of the planet by conducting these recycling projects.
