Keeping our school environment safe, healthy and eco friendly
We recycle with TerraCycle
Here at East-the-Water Primary School, we are part of the TerraCycle Recycling Rewards Programme and recycle Pringles tubes and L.O.L Surprise products, packaging and accessories. This means TerraCycle donates money to our school funds for recycling these items.
The Pringles tubes and L.O.L Surprise items will be recycled into raw materials and then sold to manufacturing companies who produce the end product and complete the recycling journey. These end products may include outdoor furniture and decking, plastic shipping pallets, watering cans, storage containers, bins, playground surface covers and more! Ms Sussex and our School Council members support children across our school to recycle as much as we can.
Green bottle top recycling
We have collected 4700 bottle tops over the last year. We send these off to a charity who sells the tops on to be recycled into items such as biro pens, lids and containers. The money raised is donated to our local children’s hospice in Fremington.
We have asked pupils to complete surveys to make us more aware of the reasons for playground litter. We regularly discuss this concern in assemblies ensuring our pupils feel responsible for both litter and caring for our school environment.
