RECYCLING

St. Gabriel’s School Recycling Programme

 

The recycling programme at St. Gabriel’s School is one of the best recycling programmes in Barbados.  Each term, parents are needed from each class to assist with sorting and storing recycling items.  However, in order for the programme to continue efficiently, there must be dedicated parental support.  All families – current and new - are encouraged to play their part in the recycling activity, which not only benefits the School but the entire environment. 

 

Household items which can be recycled, can be brought in clean, separated and placed in their respective bins in the Recycling area (opposite the blue benches) or taken directly to the Recycling Shed in the lower Car Park. 

 

Please be mindful that as fellow parents volunteer to keep the St. Gabriel’s School’s recycling programme in operation, they should be treated with respect and consideration with the items they sort.
