Wastebusters would encourage parents to consider how children’s crafts can be recycled once you no longer need or want them. Be sure to take the items apart, and ensure everything is clean, dry and loose before recycling them. Check your local waste facilities about what items go in which bin. And consider going as eco as possible (eco alternatives are available such as bamboo paint brushes, soy crayons, homemade playdough & glue, paper straws, recycled card), never use glitter (that can make items unrecyclable), use eco tape – this is recyclable (plastic sticky tape is not) and eco-paint. And don’t forget to remove any metal objects such as staples.

Eco-tip! We have made paper mache in our Treasure Island. When it is made with flour and water it isn’t recyclable afterwards but it can be composted!
