Paper and cardboard recycling in Marlborough schools and kindergartens is going strong, and is benefitting our region in a number of ways.
Through the Paper4Trees programme, 190 new native trees were earned in the 2016/2017 year, due to the recycling of 38 tonnes of paper and cardboard! These recycling efforts also saved over 300 m³ of landfill space, and prevented over 200 tonnes of CO2 from being produced in landfill. Since Marlborough joined in 2009, more than 1,300 trees have been earnt, through over 300 tonnes of paper and cardboard recycling. Ka mau te wehi, Marlborough!
Marlborough District Council is continuing its support of this excellent programme this year, so make sure that your school or early childhood centre has signed up, and get recycling!
