MPACT MAKES RECYCLING AT SCHOOLS FUN

According to Mpact Recycling starting a school recycling programme need not be an overwhelming task, it simply requires a bit of planning. “Paper can be both reused and recycled. By using every sheet on both sides, using the reverse side as scrap paper or for making copies, a school’s paper cost could be reduced considerably. Other paper-based materials such as juice and milk cartons from the tuck shop also add up, making carton recycling a smart addition to any school’s recycling programme and a great way to keep cartons out of landfills,” says Donna Noble, Communications Manager of Mpact Recycling. “On top of that, by getting involved with Mpact’s Ronnie Recycler programme your school can raise funds while teaching your learners about recycling and environmental awareness.

WISE UP TO WASTE AT HOME – RECYCLE IT

Home is where you can make the biggest difference to the amount of waste that you recycle. “South Africans are now able to recycle milk and juice cartons, making a sizeable difference to the quantity of material that can be removed from the household rubbish bin for recycling. This means that today a large variety of paper-based packaging materials are recyclable, simplifying things even further for the consumer,” says Donna-Mari Noble, Communications Manager of Mpact Recycling.
