South Northamptonshire Council boosts recycling for schools

South Northamptonshire Council is giving schools across the district the chance to take part in a free 'bin audit' scheme.

The scheme will show children just how much recycling is being missed, and ending up in landfill, and aims to help them to improve their recycling and save money.

A sample of rubbish bins at each participating school will be sorted on the school grounds, so the staff and children can see exactly what they’re throwing away.

The schools will be re-visited a few months later to see how their recycling has improved.

Kingsbrook Secondary School in Deanshanger is the first school to sign up to the scheme.

Councillor Rebecca Breese, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Waste Management said: "This is a great opportunity for children and staff to see just how much waste their school produces, and encourage them to reduce waste in the future."
