Plastics Recycling @ Markeaton School

Markeaton School is highlighting the importance of recycling by encouraging as many people as possible to bring small plastic items along to a special recycling point near the school office. Some of these items should not be put into the council’s blue bins e.g. the packaging for personal care wipes so taking them to the school reduces the amount going into landfill.

The project is part of a competition: if the school recycles enough of these items, then it will win playground equipment which is itself made of recycled products! Details of the competition are here

You can drop off your collection of personal care/beauty plastics into the school at any time between 09:00-16:00. Just ring the buzzer, go in and empty your items into the recycling container.

See Poster for details of which items of beauty packaging you can recycle.
