Recycle with Northfold School
Northfold Primary School has a very active eco-team of pupils and staff. They’ve done all kinds of things to try and clean up Cleveleys and educate adults about how to do their bit.
You can help the environment by dropping some kinds of plastic waste off at the school. Even better, the school gets points for each unit collected, which helps them to raise money.
Recycle air and home care products
Northfold are collecting various plastics we all use at home, in partnership with Febreze and Terracycle. So now you’ve got a home for those things that you don’t want to just throw away, including:
– Plastic bottle caps off washing up liquid bottles (but not the bottle)
– Plastic trigger heads from cleaning products like kitchen/bathroom sprays (but not the bottle)
– Flexible packets from wipe packaging
– Pumps and caps from home cleaning products
– Plastic air freshener packaging (but not the cardboard)
– Plastic air fresheners themselves, and air freshener cartridges
Recycle writing instruments
Something else that Northfold School are collecting is writing instruments – that’s pens and biros and such like to me and you!
Drop your dead pens off at the school, when they have enough they are sent to Terracycle. In partnership with BIC they ensure that your waste is recycled into new products like watering cans, waste paper bins or maybe pencil pots.
AND a donation is given to the school for each pen that’s collected. A penny a pen might not sound much, but it all adds up. We’re saving our old pens, will you?
The Fight Against Dog Poo! Northfold Primary School News
Children at Northfold Primary School are sick of people leaving their dog poo on the floor in the streets around their school.
So in July 2018 they took the challenge of getting people to pick it up into their own hands.
Under the guidance of teacher Mrs Julie Ellershaw, the children have designed their own leaflets which are intended to spread the message that EVERYONE should ‘pick up dog poo’.
Then, along with Robert Swales, who is the Enforcement Officer for this area at Wyre Council, they all went out to hand deliver them to local houses.
The children at Northfold have been an enormous help to the local community in spreading the message that we should all look after where we live. Please respect their efforts by picking up your dog’s poo. Bag it and then bin it. Please don’t leave bagged dog poo on the floor, or worse still, hide it in a hedge or someone’s garden!
And don’t drop litter (or cigarette ends) on the floor – if there isn’t a bin nearby please hold onto it until you can bin it.
