As part of our ongoing ECO work we will be taking part in the RAG BAG Textile Recycling Scheme this year. The next collection will be from school on Tuesday 8th March. Start looking out unwanted textiles, including all types and quality of clothing, paired shoes, bags, hats, belts, towels, soft toys, curtains and bed linen. All items must be clean and dry. There is also a BOOK REUSE SCHEME for all unwanted textbooks, library stock, general literature and novels. These items are sorted and reused where possible. They DO NOT ACCEPT exercise books, dictionaries, journals, magazines or newspapers.
More details will follow shortly and bags will be issued so that you can send in your items on Monday 7th March (please do not send them in before this date as we have nowhere to store them) Please don’t put books and textiles in the same bag.
The school receives payment for every kilogram of books and textiles which are recycled, so it’s an ideal opportunity to start clearing out those cupboards and helping school in the process!
The ‘Rag Bag’ recycling scheme has been developed to provide regular fundraising for schools, clubs, nurseries and various organisations UK Wide.
The scheme increases awareness about textile recycling and by increasing recycling rates we can help the environment by ensuring less material goes to landfill.
