Wirral primary pupils win national recycling competition
Brookdale Primary School in Greasby has won the Danone Rubbish to Riches recycling competition, a nationwide competition to save empty Danone Activia, Shape and Actimel yogurt containers from landfill.

In three months, the school saved 4,300 yogurt pots from landfill, winning the school a first prize of a 200 donation which the school has used to purchase a flag pole so it can raise the green flag it has recently been awarded as part of the Keep Britain Tidy Eco-Schools programme.

Parent Governor Sandra Leonard said the best part has been: How excited the children get about how many plastic yogurt pots they can save. The school has become an eco-school so this initiative fits in perfectly and has helped us to practically teach the children the importance of resource conservation, recycling and upcycling at the same time as helping us earn our Eco-Schools green flag.

The school was presented with its certificate at the weekly school assembly last week, during which TerraCycle talked to the pupils about the benefits of recycling.
