Learning how Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council recycle our waste
We were delighted to welcome Tamzin Richie and Alison from TMBC to Assembly. They shared with us what happens to our waste and explained the new kerbside service that they are launching in September where plastics, glass, batteries, WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment), and textiles will be collected from homes in addition to the paper, card, tins and green and food waste that is already collected. What goes into which bin will be changing, so we look forward to hearing more about this over the next few months.
Tamzin also encouraged us to compost, so Eco-club have been on the case and, working with Mr Gadd and Mrs Reeves, have set up a compost bin in the central garden. Compostable snack waste will now be collected and composted along with some of the blue paper towels to produce lovely compost for our garden. The teachers are also joining in collecting tea bags and
other compostables in the staff room!
