Testimonial from Darton Primary School PTFA


Recycling is important to us at our school and we have several recycling schemes that children/parents are keen to support. The most successful one is ‘Empties Please’ where we have raised £174.50 with our first bin within school. A few parents have also helped us to add to that total by signing up the company they work for which so far as raised £146.25, giving an amazing total of £320.75. We are delighted with this success, simply by recycling ink cartridges that people would just throw away, with a strong and clear message to all our children/parents of the importance and benefits of recycling.
Everyone within school has really embraced this scheme with many children coming and asking for more recycling bags. Several classes have run various topics emphasizing the importance of recycling all our waste, teaching children how waste can be remanufactured and converted into new materials, cutting down the waste which is sent to landfill. Our children are very keen to play their part in protecting the environment and we all enjoy the benefits of being able to raise money for school too.
‘Empties Please’ provide everything you need to run this successful and vital recycling scheme and your school can play a part in protecting our environment with the added benefit of raising much needed funds for school too. It’s so easy, just give it a go!
Thank you Empties Please, we look forward to continuing with this project for many more years!
