It's to encourage recycling and help pupils develop good habits. We'll go through with our children what parts of a card can and cannot be recycled, and why. We'll do the hard work and remove the parts that can't be recycled so hopefully this will mean more recycling 🙂

Over 1 Billion cards are thrown away in the UK every year. You can recycle your Christmas Cards with us. Parents/carers can send them in with their children. Members of the public can hand them into a member of staff at the gates (8am-8.45am or 4pm-4.15pm) https://t.co/NbF1FyQogV
