Writing Instruments Recycling Programme

Halswell School is now part of the Terracycle Recycling Programme.  Accepted waste in this programme: All writing instruments (except for wooden pencils, crayons and chalk) are accepted:

Any brand of pen, felt tip, highlighter, marker, correction fluid pot (must be empty), correction tape, mechanical pencil and eraser pen regardless of their composition.

Note that we do not accept glue sticks, erasers, rulers or other cutting objects that could disturb the recycling process. Please be careful not to include any of those items.

Please drop them into the box at the school office and the Enviro Group will send them away and save them from going in landfill
