Bexleyheath school joins recycling scheme

PUBLISHED: 17:30 19 December 2012

Helping the environment was the motivation for Pelham Primary School in Bexleyheath getting involved in phone network O2’s Recycle for Schools programmes.

It enables pupils, parents and teachers to recycle unwanted electronic gadgets and devices like mobile phones or games consoles. The new scheme buys the items and all money raised goes to the school in Pelham Road.

The school is aiming to raise £1,000 for eco-projects from the sold items.

It is estimated that every year across the country, £762 million-worth of gadgets are thrown away each year.
