recycling helps the environment and raises funds for us
We are proud to announce that Humpty Dumpty Pre-School is currently participating in an exciting recycling collection programme with TerraCycle®. We will be collecting typically non-recyclable waste packaging materials that would normally be disposed of and sent to local landfill.
The TerraCycle Brigade® recycling programmes that we have signed up to are a fun and easy way to teach people about environmental responsibility and the reuse of waste materials, whilst helping us to raise money for Humpty Dumpty Pre-School at the same time.
The waste packaging itself will be recycled into plastic products such as waste bins or watering cans, or ‘upcycled’ into new products such as pencil cases and lunch bags. This means that a smaller volume of raw materials then need to be extracted from the earth to produce the packaging for new products. TerraCycle will award a TerraCycle point donation based on the weight of the waste items collected and returned. Each TerraCycle point is redeemable for a £0.01 pence contribution for Humpty Dumpty Pre-School.
We currently collect the following:
