ECO-PUPILS at St James Infant School in Daventry were the recipients of a recycling centre donated by Cummins on Monday.

Cummins workers brought the pupils a large shed with a series of drawers in which to store items for recycling.

Year one teacher and eco-coordinator, Matt Hughes, said: “We hope the shed will get the wider community involved in recycling because they can bring things like batteries and mobile phones to be recycled at the school.”

The Cummins workers met the St James eco committee, made up of two pupils from each year group, and whose job it is to come up with eco-friendly initiatives for the school.

Mr Hughes said: “The children have a lot of enthusiasm and take ownership of the committee and have also come up with a card scheme to try to save electricity.”
