Bishop Shanahan National School

Litter and waste

In 2009 we received our first green flag for litter and waste. We were delighted with our efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle around the school environment.

Here is a list of some of the things we are doing in our school to reduce, reuse and recycle litter and waste:

  • Each class has a recycling bin and a compost bin which they empty daily.
  • Battery boxes are located outside each classroom and there is a large box for recycling phones in the hall.
  • We collect used stamps and recycle them by sending them to the Irish Peatland Conservation Council.
  • We use reusable lunch containers instead of tin foil
