Grantham primary school pupils feature in video showing South Kesteven residents what to put in each bin





School pupils have featured in a video to show residents the right things to put in each of their bins.

Fifteen pupils from Harlaxton Primary School and Denton Primary School, both in Grantham, have filmed the video in partnership with the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership.

It shows South Kesteven residents what goes in each of their bins, including the recently introduced purple-lidded bin which is for paper and cardboard.

Councillor Patsy Ellis and Councillor Rhys Baker, both SKDC cabinet members for waste and environment, said: “These children are our future and the future of our planet. We must listen to them and learn from them.

“It is so important that the whole of our community, including school children and their parents, learn about the importance of recycling and the difference it can make to our planet.

Ahead of the collections, SKDC have been issuing tags on silver recycling bins - known as the ‘tags of shame’ - which advises people if items have been put in the incorrect bin.
