CVC Partners with Greenbatch
We are pleased to announce that our CVC Bush Ranger Cadets have recently partnered with Greenbatch Foundation.
Greenbatch is working towards building Western Australia's first PET plastic recycling facility, turning the PET plastic bottles we put in our recycling bins into 3D printing filament for schools to build and create with.
That's right: there are currently no PET plastic recycling facilities in WA. Every time you put a plastic bottle into the recycling bin, it is processed, streamed into the different waste streams and then sold to the global waste market, with a small portion being bought locally and the rest shipped overseas.
Our cadets have placed several Greenbatch recycle bins around the school. These bins are for plastic bottles and aluminium cans that are used by students and staff at the College. Each week our cadets will come around to collect and empty the bins.
Once the Greenbatch Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) starts on June 2, 2020, the 10c credit from bottles will reduce collection costs (the more bottles our school collects the larger the CDS credit). The CDS credit will enable us to purchase through the Greenbatch Partnerships 3D Filament, Community Group (Rotary Youth and Leadership) programs, supplies from Woolworths, and many more.
