One of the first things visitors to VICTORIA notice (after no graffiti) is the lack of litter bins around the site! This is a very deliberate strategy to make everybody more aware of the waste we produce.
There are recycling bins in each classroom to accommodate the rubbish produced there; paper, pencil sharpenings, used staples etc. There is even a ‘Rubbish Rubbish’ bin for messy accidents but nowhere to leave a dirty yoghurt pot!
Lunch-time litter must go home, in the lunch box or school bag. Only a few new students try to use the bathroom bins for it. Most families support our recycling programme superbly, dropping off bags of clean packaging as they collect their children.
