Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!

How much rubbish does Room 5 and Room 18 accumulate over 2 days?

Room 5 and Room 18 decided to take a closer look at the rubbish we are producing in our classes to help answer PBL question "How can we as waste management agents, reduce waste at our school?".

We collected 2 days worth of rubbish to sort and find what were the main contributors in our bins.

Overall, we found that on average the most common item was paper and closely followed by plastic (specially chip packets), followed by food waste and then other.

Now our class will start thinking about solutions to help us reduce this plastic and paper rubbish!
