The plastic cap collection by Gozo College San Lawrenz Primary school for the Irricikla ghall-Istrina activity, has now reached this year’s total of 820kg of caps (around 55 large sacks).
For each kilogramme collected by the school, GreenPak will now give a donation to the Community Chest Fund. These caps were collected thanks to the help of the students, staff and volunteers.
When the caps were picked up, the students and teachers took the opportunity to test out their Mathematical skills such as estimation of weight, reading of weighing scales and calculation of totals.
Besides contributing to a worthy cause, the school has helped so that 820kg of plastic waste was properly recycled instead of possibly finishing up polluting our environment.
The school has already started collecting caps again for next year so the public is invited to please leave their plastic caps at the school’s collection site. With everyone`s help the aim is to reach the 1 ton target within the next 12 months.
