RECYCLE YOUR CRISP PACKETS

RECYCLE YOUR CRISP PACKETS

Every year countless pieces of crisp packets end up in landfill sites across the UK.

We are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.

The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme allows us to recycle your crisp packets and prevent them from ending up in landfill.

Not only are you helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us also helps to fund schools or organisations.

We will be collecting crisp packets until 1st of April. The children attended a short assembly today to hear all about it and know where to put their packets. Some pupils from P6 will collect these at break and lunch time.

Thank you.
