Last month we launched a recycling campaign in school linked to national recycling week (week beginning Monday 24th September). We had two ‘Waste Awareness’ assemblies where the children learnt about the benefits of using rechargeable batteries, how to recycle batteries responsibly as well as the negative environmental consequences of their incorrect disposal.
The following week we held an electrical amnesty event where children brought in lots of small electrical items found around their house. These were collected by Gateshead Council at the end of the day.
Keep bringing in your waste batteries everyone!
