Recycle your used oral care products


​Our school has the chance to win a recycled community garden set by diverting thousands of oral care products such as (toothbrushes, boxes and toothpaste tubes) from landfill, thanks to a recycling competition run by Colgate, Chemist Warehouse and TerraCycle.

Between 23 March and 31 October 2018, the Colgate Community Garden Challenge invites schools to collect all brands of oral care waste and send it to TerraCycle, who will give the waste a second life by creating new products.
Bring your used products into school. 

There will be a box in the lost property area!

Peregian Springs State School has the chance to win one of five recycled community garden sets.  Each set includes three garden beds, two custom made benches, one rubbish bin and one sign, plus a $500 gardening voucher to buy seeds and plants.
We can keep watch of our competition ranking on a digital leaderboard.  Individuals can also vote for Peregian Springs State School at this link:
