Transcript

  • 1. REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE Recycling in your School
  • 2. East Lothian Waste In East Lothian last year we created 58 000 tonnes of household waste We currently recycle and compost 38% of this but that still means 62% is going to landfill Which is almost a tonne of rubbish per household every year (the weight of a large bull or a car)!
  • 3. Every time we put something in our green wheeled bin it will end up at a landfill site Rubbish dumped in a landfill site produces harmful greenhouse gases All our rubbish is sent to Viridor’s landfill site situated by the cement works off the A1 near Dunbar Landfill
  • 4. Reduce and Reuse
  • 5. Why Should We Recycle?

    • You avoid putting rubbish into a landfill site.
    • You help to conserve energy and important raw materials

  • 8. What Happens to the things we Recycle?
    • The cans, plastic bottles and glass are sent to a MRF in Darwen, Lancashire to be sorted before being recycled.
    • The paper and cardboard goes to a paper mill in Newport, Wales where it is recycled into various paper products.
  • 9. The energy saved from recycling one aluminium can is enough to run a TV for 3 hours. Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve enough energy to light a 60W light bulb for up to 6 hours. Recycling one tonne of paper saves 32,000 litres of water. It can take just 7 days for old magazines and newspapers to be recycled into new ones. And Finally….Some Recycling Facts!
