The Rubbish Audit

On Tuesday afternoon ALL the rubbish from EVERY bin @ Nelson Central School was taken and put into the hall.
On Wednesday the seniors went and helped sort it into 4 piles: paper, cardboard, food scraps & plastic. We could see all the rubbish that our school makes in a DAY!

At 11am we were lucky enough to visit and listen to Sarah from the Nelson City Council talk about rubbish and recycling.

Photos by our Official Photographers: Jackson & Josh - well done :)

Here are some of Room 9's fantastic recounts of the visit!

Today Room 9 went to the hall. Sarah, a lady from the council came to tell us about rubbish. I looked at the rubbish. It was on the floor. I learned about the rubbish that it goes to the recycling place or the dump. By Donovan
