Schools and Early Learning Centres
Is your school or early learning centre on a journey to become more sustainable?
Council's free waste minimisation program is available to schools in our region and offers training, support and donated infrastructure to build a sustainable waste management system onsite. The environmental, social, cultural and economic benefits for the school, teachers, students and wider school community will preserve natural resources and build capacity towards a more sustainable future.
Early Learning Centres
Early learning centres, day care and outside school hours care providers are eligible for support through training workshops. Five free evening workshops provide educators access to develop skills, experience and resources including how to implement and embed a best practice waste and recycling system onsite, reducing the costly general waste, and easy composting programs for food and garden waste.
Council provides more support and an annual award presentation for Centres who have regularly attended the workshops and have achieved significant improvement in managing their Centres waste and engaging their staff, children and wider community in their waste reduction journey.
