WEEE Ireland Assembly

Today, a man called Niall Lydon from Galway, came to the school to talk to us about recycling. He talked to us about not throwing electrical items away. We learned from him that we can recycle most things in the world like kettles, Xboxes, PS3s, washing machines etc. His rule was that anything that can be plugged in or has batteries can be recycled. He said that one of the few things that cannot be recycled is chewing gum so he encouraged us not to throw it on the ground because it does not decompose and will stay there for a long time.He told us what happens to items during the recycling process. We learned a lot from Niall’s talk and we thank him for coming to us to teach us more about recycling.
