Send these forms back to your representative
The Mpact Recycling representative will sign you up and start the school off with:
Should you wish to recycle the office/class paper only and do not wish to do any form of paper drive, we will supply you with 30 white bags which are collected once all 30 bags are full. The bags need to be placed in one central place on the school property for ease of collection.
Ronnie recycler bins
Mpact Recycling 'Ronnie recycler bins' are boxes that can be used in the offices, classrooms and halls as an easy way for separation and storage of paper. These need to be collected from one of our Mpact Recycling branches.
Each Ronnie bank holds between 350kgs and 500kgs when full. A Ronnie bank is supplied to the school if the tonnages exceed a certain amount and the bags fill up too quickly.
Mpact Recycling suggests an active paper drive is put in place to encourage teachers, parents and learners to bring paper from home on a weekly basis. The Ronnie bank must be located in a place which allows easy access for a 16 tonne collection vehicle. Ronnie banks that stand empty for three consecutive months will be removed.
Collection & payment
Collections are not done automatically. Each school needs to call their Mpact Recycling branch to arrange a collection as and when you have between 20 and 30 bags of paper or when your paper bank is full. You will need to supply your GP code or school name (supplied to you upon registration) when you log the collection. Once collected, we pay for every tonne of paper picked up. Payment terms are as per your Supplier registration form. A detailed remittance advice is sent at the time of payment via email.
