This week's eco challenge is: Dispose of all your waste using the correct bins (Not just in the general waste bin!)
If one item is but into the wrong bin, that whole bin is contaminated at all that otherwise recyclable waste goes into landfill, where much of it is blown into waterways and pollutes the seas
If ANY food or liquid (i.e. bits of lettuce, pasta or left-over drink) is left in an item packaging, that packaging (and the whole bin) is contaminated and will go to landfill - put organic waste in the general bin!
Many aren't also aware that the school gets fined money for any contaminated waste they give in to be recycled.
If people are actively aware that all waste, especially the recyclables, don't just go to the same place and if everyone recycles properly, we can dramatically reduce reliance on and waste in landfill, which will help save money and save the environment.
