Wastewise

The WasteWise programme is a student-led waste reduction initiative which has been introduced at KBHS this year. 

So far, a “whole school waste audit of one day’s waste,” “presentations at assemblies” and a “paper recycling trial” have been carried out.

Audit Results for waste currently going to landfill:Graph

63% Recyclable

37% Non-Recyclable

A significant 17% is paper

 

 

F Block Paper Recycling Trial

A paper recycling system has been trialled in F Block with positive results. The bins were provided free by the government and business funded ‘Paper for Trees’ programme. The system involves a volunteer from each tutor group bringing their classroom bin to a larger paper recycling bin in the morning, and is becoming part of the ‘KBHS’
