Many students have been participating in the soft plastic recycling program with some just dropping their food wrappers in the bin as they walk past and others bringing full bags from home and putting them in their house bin. So far, all together, Flinders have collected 106.5 kg of soft plastic.

As far as the house competition goes, Acacia House is in the lead, having collected 33.5 kg of waste. However, right on their tail is Hovea House who have collected 32 kg. Epacris and Correa house are not too far behind and they will have time to catch up as the competition progresses.
