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!

Ask York. (Coming soon!)

What is Ask York?  Well – first ask yourself “What are the burning issues affecting York today?”

Ask York is a brand new show coming to Two Rivers Radio in 2018 that seeks to discuss this question by raising issues with an expert panel and maybe even come up with some answers – all while enjoying a drink and perhaps a bite to eat.

The very first edition will be recorded at Angel on the Green from 8pm on Wednesday 24th January.  Please join our live audience and bring a question for our panel!  There is seating for around 30 – so please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

Pete Kilbane, indie businessman and community activist will be your host and our chair.

The panel will include:

Kate Pickett – Professor of Epidemiology, University Champion for Research on Justice and Equality, and Deputy Director of the Centre for Future Health;
University of York (also co-author of The Spirit Level: Why more equal societies almost always do better

Paul Healey – Conservative councilor for 8 years up to 2015 and Deputy Group Leader. Small business owner.

Helen Graham – Helen has been working on the My Castle Gateway project and teaches Heritage Studies at the University of Leeds.

Jonny Crawshaw

The show will not be broadcast live, but will be recorded and broadcast the following Monday 29th at 2pm. You will be able to listen to the broadcast here: www.tworiversradio.stream – and we will be archiving the show on this website, too.

The recording will begin at 8:30 and last for approximately 1 hour.

Each month, we will put together a panel of local politicians, journalists, campaigners, business-people, academics and experts in all manner of fields to be quizzed by a live audience.

This is your opportunity to ask questions of those in the City that are making and affecting the decisions we as a community all have to live with and to hear all sides of many contentious debates.

It would be great if those who wish to come and ask a question contact the show in advance so that we have an idea of numbers. If you could also indicate the topic that you wish to discuss (not necessarily the specific question) that would be very useful: email – tworiversradio@gmail.com

Although the recording begins at 8:30, you are welcome to arrive early. The Angel on the Green has a wonderful menu (available until 8pm) and a cosy bar serving an excellent range of hot and cold drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There will also be time after the recording for audience and panel members to mingle and further discuss the topics raised.

So whether you have a question about housing, business rates, students, alcohol licencing, local services, health, education, road maintenance, recycling, benefits, green economy, use of public space, development of brownfield sites, universal credit, redevelopment, creating a Yorkshire Assembly, employment, Coney Street, making better use of the river, tourism, cultural diversity, equality or anything else — please get in touch.
