Free trees for paper-wise schools
Digging in: Pupils from Havelock North Intermediate and Te Mata School planting
trees with HDC's waste minimisation planner Angela Atkins and Gus Keip, the
caretaker of both schools, which are involved in the Paper4Trees programme.
Pupils pictured (from left) are: Devon Williams and Ben Hooper (Havelock); Finley
Keip and Freya Appleyard (Te Mata); Emma Johnson (Havelock); and Kayan Hardy
and Rio Croswell (Te Mata).
The 47 Hastings schools and pre-
schools participating in the national
Paper4Trees programme have been
presented with free native plants to
celebrate World Environment Day
on June 5.
Under the programme, schools
receive one native tree or shrub for
every 2000 litres of paper and card-
board they recycle -- the equivalent
of eight 240-litre wheelie bins, or one
two-cubic metre recycling skip.
The national EERST trust
provides all schools with 30-litre
green recycling bins for every room
in the school to make it easier for
them to recycle, as it keeps the paper
and cardboard separate from other
materials, limiting the amount of
Based on their 2010 recycling
amounts, Hastings schools received
850 trees this year, which have been
provided for free by sponsors the
Hastings District Council.
HDC's waste minimisation plan-
ner Angela Atkins joined students
from Havelock North Intermediate
and Te Mata School for a tree-
planting day in the wet last Friday.
The programme is a great fit with
our sustainability initiatives, and it's
a great reward for the efforts the
students have put into recycling over
Havelock North Intermediate
teacher Valerie Moretti, who
organises the school's recycling pro-
gramme, said the benefits were two-
fold. Our school is actually recycling
less and less,'' she said. Over the
past four years I've done this, I've
seen our amount of waste dwindle
The 68,500 trees planted
nationally under the Paper4Trees
programme will have diverted over
17,125 tonnes of paper and card-
board from landfill, saved 137,000
cubic metres of landfill space, and
stopped 43,155 tonnes of carbon
dioxide being produced in landfill.
