Our new sixth form Environmental Committee at Myton are keen to introduce more recycling schemes in school and are planning to start using a scheme called Terracycle, which aims to efficiently recycle all pen types without the need for separation or cleaning.

From September, all form groups will start collecting old pens which we will then put into the Terracycle scheme at the end of each half term. The plan is to set up a reward system for the form who collects the most.

Committee Chair, Lauren Fardoe said: “We believe this could transform how the majority of the school views recycling, as well as helping the school’s carbon footprint.”
