Turning Waste Into Pocket Money.
Equip your child with a sturdy litter picker, a pair of gloves and a good strong bin liner. Its time to earn that pocket money! On a nice Sunday morning whilst most people are still in there slumber, you can be making the most of an early morning walk. Pick a route around a local park and pathways and concentrate your efforts on seeking out all the discarded cans and any other metals people have thrown down. Let your child recover these items into the black bin liner whilst the parent concentrates on a litter pick, segregating the waste streams at source. Once your morning walk is over and your bags are full it is time to reap the rewards. The litter bag can go to the local amenity site and the metal bag can go to the local scrap yard. Were the metal value is paid to the child as pocket money. Improving your local area, recycling materials and earning money!! What a great lesson and experience.
