By Sophie and Ilaria from Press Gang

At Kegworth we are trying hard to reduce waste and become a zero waste school. We are doing lots of good work, but we can all do more.

One problem is that there are a lot of misconceptions about what can and can’t be recycled. Here are five things that can’t be recycled along with sustainable alternatives!

  1. The first object you can’t recycle is coffee cups on the other hand you can recycle keep cups.

3. The third object you can’t recycle is plastic bags on the other hand you recycle fabric shopping bags.
