Waste Week 2022

St Mary’s CofE Academy is one of the first to join Waste Week 2022. The students are learning about the importance of recycling as part of the Eco-council’s drive to make the school as environmentally friendly as possible.


Waste Week runs from 17th-25th March 2022 and this year launches a special new schools' competition, the Hidden Treasure Hunt that runs from 17th March-14th April 2022.


The Hidden Treasure Hunt is inviting schools to help get more of the unwanted electricals and electronics hidden around people’s homes, recycled across the UK, by inspiring students, families and their communities to find any unwanted items and take them into a Currys store.


Any unwanted broken or working electricals from hairdryers to tablets, mobile phones, to kitchen appliances can be taken to Currys.


When you take your old electrical appliances to be recycled please quote the school code LAPTOP21.


Every family that takes their unwanted electrical or tech ‘treasure’ to a Currys store during The Hidden Treasure Hunt (17th March – 14th April 2022) will also receive a £5 ‘Cash for Trash’ discount voucher (which can be redeemed on purchases of £25 and over).
