Innovative Recycling Project at York School

There has been a lot of talk about plastic waste recently and for good reason:
  • 1 million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute
  • That number’s like to rise by 20% in the next 3 years
  • In the UK, around 450 plastic bottles are bought every second
  • Over 150 plastic bottles end up in landfill in the UK every second.

Students at Fulford School alone get through hundreds of disposable plastic bottles every day. We’ve recently launched a campaign to make sure as few of those end up in landfill as possible. After seeing the heart-wrenching footage of preventable plastic pollution on the BBC’s Blue Planet, staff and students have decided it’s time to see what small but significant action can be taken.
Tim Johnson, Deputy Head has initiated a school-wide campaign to increase the quantity, visibility and use of dedicated recycling bins around school.
Kate Frame, Head of House has launched a whole school recycling poster competition to promote environmentally responsible behaviour.
Fulford’s Computing, Science and Design Technology departments have joined forces to launch Recycle3D: a project that aims to get Fulford students recycling their own plastic bottles into 3d printer filament. Students can then 3d print their own educational models using materials they’ve recycled themselves as well as making gifts to sell to raise money for good causes that the students feel passionate about supporting.
Students at Fulford’s STEM club have been learning how to design and animate 3d objects. The next step is to purchase and assemble a multicolour 3d printer. The final stage is to purchase and set up a student-led recycling production line so that they can turn waste plastic bottles into 3d printer filament.
If successful, staff at Fulford are keen to work with local primary schools to establish STEM clubs and 3d printing facilities wherever there’s a desire to replicate the success of this project.
In order to get the project up and running, students need to raise £1500 for the equipment necessary to process plastic bottles into 3d printer filament.
Y10 iMedia students have created a video for a crowd funding site, rocketfund in the hope of raising awareness so that local businesses can donate enough money to get the project started.
If you want to find out more or are able to donate a small amount to support this project, please check out https://rocket.fund/p/recycle3d/
Pete Dring and some of his students will hopefully be vising the Two Rivers Radio studio later this month to talk about Recycle 3d in more detail.
Keep your ears peeled!
