Recycling at Benington School

Here at Benington School, we’ve been making a concerted effort to recycle and reduce more this year.

We have drastically cut down on sending paper copies of letters home, instead sending them online.
We are also going to try and re-use paper instead of recycling it when only one side has been used.

We have already begun recycling batteries and milk cartons and from September, we will begin recycling bread bags, crisp packets and cardboard.

How can you help?

You can drop batteries into the school office during school opening times.
We can accept AAA, AA, C and D batteries, but please put any damaged batteries in a separate bag.

From September crisp bags and bread bags can be put in the boxes which will be located by our  refuse bins in the school car park. Please ensure the bags are empty and flattened.

FOBS run ‘Bags to School’ several times a year which is a fundraising initiative where used clothes are reused and recycled. Please look out for notifications about when you can bring along your 2nd hand to school.

We hope this will help encourage children to recycle more at home. 
Please support us with our endeavour and spread the word.
