    What is recycling?
    By transforming waste materials into useable resources, recycling reduces landfill and conserves resources, provides a way to manage solid waste while reducing pollution, conserving energy, creating jobs and building more competitive manufacturing industries.

    How Can I Recycle?
    A lot of our garbage can be recycled. The usual recyclable materials include glass, aluminium, steel, PET plastic, HDPE plastic, paper, and light cardboard. These can be placed in our recycling bins, or larger items can be taken to recycling plants or community drop off centres. At school we can sort and recycle most of the waste that we produce, even some food scraps can be composted! Recycling is the final stage of the 3R's. Whatever cannot be initially reduced, or reused, should then be considered for recycling.

    How is EcotowmEcotown Primary promoting
    We have decided to raise money for the worm farm and vegie patch in a sustainable way. One way we can do this is by repurposing and selling items around the school and the house that we no longer use or need. To do this efficiently, and to get us thinking about how we use the things that we buy and to decide whether we really need them, we will conduct a school audit. As a class we will go around the school with our audit sheets to find the things that we think can be repurposed. These may include old blackboards, basketball nets, and so on. As we go about the school, we will discuss how we could repurpose old items to make them into something else so that we don't have to buy it from a shop. This reduces waste, pollution caused by production, and encourages reusing and recycling.
