Minimise waste in schools

Waste minimisation outreach services

We work with schools on how to reduce waste going to landfill.

We offer waste audits to see how much of their waste sent to landfill could have been recycled or composted. It involves collecting, weighing and sorting a full day's waste.

Our facilitators can also give a talk on:

  • sustainable waste minimisation practices based on the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle)
  • waste disposal
  • how consumer choices can impact the environment
  • conservation of natural resources
  • composting and worm farming.
