"Members of the School Council and the Asquith LTD team visited the Veolia Material Recovery Facility on the 20th June to find out why we should recycle. We learned that an apple core takes 8 weeks to rot down, a banana skin takes 6 weeks. A sheet of paper takes 6 weeks BUT a glossy magazine takes between 20 to 50 YEARS! Lets make sure all those newspapers and magazines go in the blue bin, so they can be turned into other newspapers!
We also learned that many resources get put in the green bin which should be recycled like plastic bottles and tin cans. We could all do better at recycling. We will be continuing to improve our recycling next year with the Asquith LTD ECO Group. Look out for more information in Sept about how your children can join the Asquith LTD group."
