School in Ajegunle now allows parents to pay school fees with plastic bottles.

A school in Ajegunle now allows parents to pay school fees with plastic bottles, as they adopted the RecyclesPay Educational Project, an initiative of African Clean Up Initiative (ACI), an environmental non-governmental organisation in Lagos.

Morit International School, Ajegunle, which allows parents to pay school fees with cleanly sorted plastic bottles gathered from the environment, embraced the initiative following their concern about reducing the burden of parents paying their wards fees. It was further gathered that so far, over 25 parents of the low-income school have embraced the initiative whereby parents bring plastic wastes on designated days.

The amount paid is noted, after Wecyclers, the recycling company attached to the project comes to collect the plastic bottles after weighing what each parent brought. Proprietor of the school, Mr. Patrick Mbamara, described the RecyclesPay Educational Project a a welcome initiative.

It is helping to cushion the financial burden of parents in the school. We have a history of parents finding it difficult to pay each term school fees of N7, 500.

The money from the PET bottles is not much but it balances for what the parents can pay. I and my staff are happy with this initiative. It has improved parents payment of school fees and it teaches the children how to manage their waste and promote a cleaner environment.”

Also speaking to Sunnewsonline correspondent, Mr. Alex Akhigbe, Chief Environmental Officer of ACI noted that the money realized by each parents might look small but it is of value. According to him, a kilo of the sorted plastics goes for N20 to N25, adding that little drops of money realized helps make up for the balance of the school fees.

PET bottles in the past were seen as waste but they are not anymore. Parents can raise money from collecting them and making them available to recyclers. They in turn convert it to other products usable by man” he said.

It was also gathered that the alternative payment will start next term at Monarch Base Private School, Alagbado, Lagos and some other schools.
