In Term 2 our school collected rubbish for our annual waste audit. We had to take all our rubbish and recycling to the hall to see what was able to be sustainably discarded, and what was going to be landfill. We sorted all of the rubbish into boxes by their different type. Eg, organic waste, recycling, landfill. We weighed & recorded them one by one. The landfill was 200g. If the paper towels were included it would have been 600g. Last year it was 900 grams. Tony, our Enviro Schools expert, was very surprised. At the end of the day the results were great and we should be proud of what we do at North Loburn School. We need to continue to remember to put our waste in the right place!
