On the 26th June we published an article by Fi Miles about Tarvin Primary School's crisp packet recycling scheme that will help protect the environment and also benefit Claire House Children's Hospice.
It's understood that £30 has already been raised for the Hospice and, when a member of the TOL web-team went to add our contribution to the collection bin outside school door, the photograph of the full bin clearly shows that the scheme is receiving great support.
However, while the children will be looking forward to their six week summer holiday which begins this today, 19th July, it does pose a problem for the recycling scheme. If the bin was to be left outside for the six week period it is clear that it will soon be overflowing and create a local environmental problem far greater than that which the scheme aims to address. Miss Andrews stated that she "hopes that individuals will be willing store the crisp packets until the beginning of the new school term in September when, once again, the collection bin will be in operation."
Ed: In addition to individuals storing their crisp packets over the holiday period, perhaps local crisp retailers might also consider providing an alternative to the school recycling bin until the new school term starts in September.
