Day 20: Paper and card are some of the biggest waste streams at the ScienceMuseum. By our own calculation, over the 30 day documentation period we will have seen around 7 to 8 tonnes of paper and card, mostly from our shops and kitchens. Our retail team reuse what they can but most goes to be recycled into new packaging materials.
Want to see what 7.5 tonnes of recycled paper and card looks like? Visit us after 25th July for phase 2 of The Rubbish Collection. Find out more via www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/rubbishcollection
