Queen’s College drop-off for recycling plastic tubs

Posted: 23rd January 2023

If you have polished off those Christmas chocolates, treats and crackers, we are pleading with you not to throw away the plastic tubs they came in. Instead please drop them off to us at Queen’s College, where our pupils will gather them together to be recycled into something new.

You can bring your clean and empty plastic tubs to the main reception where pupils will organise for them to be collected for recycling to raise money for charity.  This year the school has joined forces with DCW Recycling and Reprocessing (dcw.co.uk), waste management experts working across the South West, to get every tub collected recycled and turned into garden furniture and raise money for two different charities. We are proud to be working in partnership with DCW to help to raise money for both Life Chance Trust – Life Chance and Dartmoor Zoological Society and to be the only designated drop-off point in Taunton for this exciting South West of England ‘Recycle & Raise’ campaign.

Life Chance Trust is an award-winning organisation that provides mentoring and life skills training to young people who have experienced trauma. They also provide therapeutic, practical and financial support to young people who have suffered trauma in early childhood. While the Dartmoor Zoo undertakes conservation, breeding and research projects as well as the care of their animal collection.

Mr Mann, Head of the Faculty of Art, Design, and Food said, “this is a truly fantastic initiative and we ask you and all your friends to please drop off all your unwanted plastic tubs at Queen’s College for recycling into garden furniture before Wednesday, February 15th 2023 to help our pupils raise money for such important causes. Thank you.
