Eco Committee Litter Pick


The Eco Committee went on their first litter pick before the October holidays with six very keen S1 litter pickers who were rewarded with 3 very full bags of rubbish!

The focus was on the bushes by the parking lot and one of the pupils kept a list of items found:

  • crisp packets (small bags, large bags, and multipack bags)
  • drink containers (plastic and glass bottles, cans, a large milk carton, and many loose bottle caps, etc.)
  • candy and gum wrappers
  • food wrapping (plastic wrap, tin foil, zip lock bags, McDonald's containers, etc.)
  • food waste (orange peels, apple cores, etc.)
  • plastic and wooden cutlery
  • straws
  • masks, plastic gloves & COVID tests
  • writing utensils & rulers
  • hair bands & hair clips
  • tissues
  • breath spray
  • vape
  • spare sock

In the next Eco Club meeting, possible solutions were discussed. One pupil noted that the bin that is the area that we litter picked was very full while others suggested the need for more bins in more convenient locations. More specifically, where pupils like to sit at break and lunch outdoors and more bins by entrances so that pupils can drop rubbish on their way back into the building. The Eco Club will continue to do litter picks after school and all students are welcome to join. Eco Photo 2Eco Photo 1
