Our College has adopted the REDcycling program for the recycling of soft plastics, after our auditing process established that soft plastic was contributing to approximately between 35% and 40% of our waste.
The Melbourne based innovative closed-loop recycling initiative involves the conversion of “soft plastics” into outdoor furniture and signage for Primary schools and Pre-Schools.
Plastic waste is periodically collected from Years 7 & 8 homerooms and the staffroom and is placed in the large REDcycling bins in the yard. Once filled, the soft plastic is taken to participating Coles supermarkets for recycling.
Participating Coles supermarkets in Geelong include; Coles Belmont (both),
Coles Corio Village, Coles Geelong Bay City, Coles Geelong West, Coles Waurn Ponds
