We have set up a bottle recycling system to encourage students to recycle their plastic bottles. We decided to do this because we had a real problem with students just throwing their bottles away. We learned that it can take up to 1000yrs for a bottle to break down in landfill.This is just not acceptable. We want to encourage students to recycle or else refill and reuse their bottles. This has been very successful so far in our school. We are hoping to reuse the bottles to make into other items that can be used. ..watch this space!
