Unique partnership trial hopes to see results

Valpak has formed a unique partnership with client Calypso and Preston City Council to introduce recycling to secondary schools in the Preston area.

The six-month trial project will involve the collection and recycling of segregated cans and bottles, through the packaging compliance schemes Local Authority Support Programme.

Preston City Council welcomed the scheme. Waste management officer Debbie Derbyshire said: This project complements our environmental education programme for children in the area who we see as being the next generation of recyclers.

While Calypso spokesman Richard Cooke added: Its exciting to offer this added value service to schools to complement our healthy drinks products.

If successful and more partnerships can be agreed, the project may be rolled out to other authority areas.
