What is recycling? Is our community aware of what recycling entails? What exactly is expected of each individual to contribute to make recycling a success?
These are questions we should ask ourselves, because recycling has become so important in our everyday lives.
What is the purpose of recycling?
The purpose of recycling is to conserve energy, help the environment, reduce pollution, slow global warming and reduce waste products in landfills. By recycling, people can greatly contribute to the earth’s overall health and keep the air, water and land clean. Recycling is a simple and easy way to help save the environment.
We realize that we need to do more to protect our environment, and in order for that to happen we need to create an awareness.
There is a great lack of recycling knowledge within our community, therefore Bitou Waste Management together with the local libraries have decided to educate the younger generation with the basics of recycling.
Posters, Activities and Pamphlets will be issued to help create the necessary awareness needed. Pamphlets will be issued to schools within the time period.
We invite youngsters to visit their local libraries to find out about the “Recycling Competition” that will be taking place during the duration of the school holidays from 5th October – 9th October 2015.
Please note that for the competition we are targeting Grade.3’s & Grade.7’s. If anyone in a different grade wishes to partake he/she may, but the standard of the competition will be for kids in those two grades.
Other activities will be provided regarding recycling for those who do not take part in the competition.
Each Library will have a winner who will be issued with a prize. Participants who partake will be issued with a certificate.
The different winners in the different libraries will be competing for a grand prize!!
Competition takes place at all local libraries on the following dates:
5 OCT. WITTERDRIFT: 10:00AM – 12:00PM
5 OCT. KURLAND: 14:00PM-16:00PM
