WASTE MANAGEMENT

Prince Charles warns that plastic is now on the menu.

Don't wait for anyone to deputize you or authorize you or empower you. You just start out with yourself...and put one foot in front of the other.

-Hazel Henderson

 

 FACTS

84 percent of all household waste can be recycled.

Most families throw away about 39 kilos of plastic every year

The rubbish dumped in landfill stays for about 30 years.

Every ton of paper recycled saves 17 trees

For every 1 ton of paper recycled, we save 26,000 litres of water free from chemicals.

Making Waste Management Easy

In the image above you can see a basket attached on the right, behind the wheelie bin.

This very clever design was  devised by a handy parent at the school who modified

an old wastebasket and added a flip lid with an opening to collect the

can, bottles, cartons and tetra packs. The clear visual labels make it easy for all

students to make clear sorting decisions.

They don't have to be able to read.
