Merici College Green Tip #20 - Terracycle "Recycling the Unrecyclable"

Sustainabilty at Merici!

Toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and their packaging and dental floss containers are not recyclable through conventional recycling streams.  

However Terracycle is an innovative company that has made a business of "recycling the unrecyclable".  

A collection station will be set up at Merici in Term 3, the bonus is that we can earn one cent per item to put towards sustainability projects here at the school. 

Please save the products pictured below from now and send them to school with your daughter/s for recycling:

I would like to thank all our community for your support this term. Particular thanks and congratulations to Balgo House who are our 2019 Clean Up Winners!

Wishing you all a happy and safe holiday!
