Waste education

Council provides the community, schools and early learning centres with an award winning waste education program to reduce waste going to landfill and increase the recovery of our valuable resources.
The waste education program is provided to the community with training and information:

  • to raise awareness of the impacts of unsustainable and wasteful behaviour on the community and our environment, and
  • to implement easy strategies to change existing patterns of behaviour.

Schools program

Schools are encouraged to register into the full School Waste Minimisation Program (SWMP).

This enables your school to access Council’s free curriculum aligned training and support to implement or improve waste reduction and resource recovery programs with the students and staff.

For more information see School Waste Minimisation Program.
