Our Terracycle collection is closing this week.

If you have anything to contribute, please do so by Thursday this week, 5th of December.

Our collection will be sent off on Thursday.

We will set up another collection next year so hold onto these items over the holidays so they are diverted from landfill. A small amount of money is also earned for the school.

Please recycle your paper and buy recycled Australian paper where possible.  Ask the businesses you support to do the same. 

If choosing wood products, ensure that they are from a certified sustainable source such as those verified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
