Woy Woy school continues to collect bottle caps
Woy Woy Public School has completed its Bottlecap Mural, but it is still collecting lids.
"We have wondered what we would do with the excess of lids," said teacher Ms Emily Bartlett.
"Would we create another mural? Throw them in the recycling bin?"
Ms Bartlett said the school was hoping to work with a company to collect, recycle and transform soft plastics into new and useful products
"We hope to work closely with the company to engage in educational recycling programs and turn our waste into useful items for around the school.
"Imagine seeing our bottle caps turned into benches, tables, garden beds.
"We have packaged and sent away our excess of bottle caps and are now requesting that we start collecting again.
"It was a mammoth job sorting out the bottle caps, cleaning them and removing the white paper insert.
"We are now more aware of what is required and ask that if you are collecting them that they are washed, dried and the white paper insert removed.
"This will make the process of shipping them off easier," Ms Bartlett said.
