Well done. Bag2school pay £500 per tonne collected. Have a look at the bags you get through the door collecting and see how little they give to the charity. The last one I had only gave £50 per tonne to the childrens charity, so £450 for them. Thats why you get about two a week, lots of profit to be made.
