Metal, Cans and Tins
Drink and food tins and cans and any metal items should all be recycled, whether they are made from ferrous or non-ferrous metals.
We have glass, metal and plastic recycling bins in the school and throughout Colstoun. Please ensure that you put the following items in these bins:
Food and drink cans
Food and drink tins
Tin foil and metal wrapping.
These bins are emptied into the main recycling bin once a week by the cleaning staff.
If possible please was the items before placing them in the bins, however this is not necessary as all recycling is cleaned at the recycling plant regardless of how clean it is previously.
Its important to recycle metals as they can be reused indefinitely without impacting their structural integrity.
If you have a large collection of food tins please check with the florists or gardeners whether they can be reused for potting up seedlings and bringing on plants.
