5/6 Waste Audit

4th March 2011

slide2

On the 4th March, 5/6 conducted a waste audit of Baradine Central School. This involved collecting the rubbish from the day before and using tongs, we sorted it into 5 groups.

slide3

The five groups were:

Landfill

Recyclable containers

Organic material

Food Scraps

Clean paper

Metal

slide5

We recorded these results so we could calculate how much of each type of waste our school generated in a week / term / year!

landfill

Landfill:

This is waste that cannot be recycled, composted or used for any other purpose.

Our school produces 2.6kg in one day!!

That’s 13kg in one week

130kg in one term

And 520kg in one school year!!

That’s how much a big fat cow weighs!!

recyclable containers
Recyclable Containers

In one day our school throws away 1.05kg of recyclable containers!!

That’s 5.25kg in one week

52.5kg in one term

And 210kg in one year!!

That’s the size of a young steer!

At the moment, we are adding that to landfill!

food scraps

Food Scraps

In one day: 4.85kg!!

That’s 24.25kg in one week

242.5kg in one term

9700kg in one year!!

That’s nearly ONE TONNE!

That’s how much a Bull weighs!

At the moment, that is being added to landfill – we could have a lot of happy chooks if we gave it to them!

clean paper
Clean Paper

Some paper gets taken to the tip to be recycled but there’s still lots that’s just going in the bin!

In one day there was 200g

Which is 1kg in one week

10kg in one term

And 40kg in one year!

That’s how much some of us weigh!

At the moment – it’s being added to landfill.......

what can we do
What can we do?

We could do nothing.....

We could keep adding 3 tonnes of landfill to the tip each year.

That would be easiest.....

But one day.... There will be no more room at the tip.

This is what happens when people are not responsible with their rubbish:

slide13

We could also become more conscious of our own waste!!

Every year over 6 million tonnes of

rubbish is dumped into the world’s

oceans, 80% of which is plastic, and

a further 10% of this being plastic

bags. With an estimated 46,000

pieces for every square mile of

ocean, plastic is responsible for

killing 1 million sea birds and over

100,000 sea mammals each year.

Turtles, whales and sea birds

mistake rubbish for food or get

entangled in it, resulting in painful

injuries, or even death.
