We have signed up for an innovative recycling programme called Recycool which turns old mobile phone and PDA handsets, used printer cartridges, DVDs and CDs into cash for the school.
Recycool develops the pupils’ enterprise skills as well as teaching them about recycling and the importance of protecting the environment. The programme also allows us to raise funds – the more mobile phones, PDAs and cartridges we collect, the more money we will receive in exchange for these products.
You can support our Recycool initiative by donating your own empty printer cartridges, mobile phones, DVDs, CDs and PDAs. We have a collection box for these items in the Library. So if you normally put empty cartridges in the bin or have an old mobile gathering dust in a drawer please drop them into the box. The funds we raise can be used for vital resources and equipment.
Not only can collecting these items normally considered as rubbish raise funds for the school, it can also help the environment. Handsets and cartridges contain toxic substances which, if they are dumped in landfill, can leak into the surrounding soil and pollute the earth. When they are Recycooled they will be passed to recycling experts Redeem, who refurbish the products for reuse.
Getting your workplace involved in the programme can generate even more funds for the school as well as benefiting the business - log on to www.recycool.org to find out how. To sign up, all your employer has to do is to quote our account number (insert number) on the website or call 08451 30 20 50.
We look forward to receiving your support for this fantastic fundraising initiative.
