Services for Schools
Council can provide the following opportunities for local schools:
Special event recycling service
- We can provide free recycling bins for the collection of plastic/glass bottles and steel/aluminium cans at special event days like fetes, discos, festivals etc.
- Council's Waste Officer is also available to provide advice on waste management for special events.
Free waste minimisation workshops
- Workshops include composting, worm farming and recycling for all ages. The information can be tailored to suit the needs of the students based on their curriculum requirements.
- Other educational activities include conducting classroom waste audits and providing information for school's environmental management plans.
Discounted compost bins and worms farms
- We can provide a compost bin and/or worm farm for schools and advice and/or workshops for the students and teachers.
- Schools and community organisations can order up to 5 compost bins or wormfarms delivered free. Order today through Compost Revolution - the online tutorial is great for kids and teachers alike. Place a separate order for each bin and include your organisation’s name in the address so we know you are not a household.
Other opportunities for schools
Other recycling opportunities schools could participate include recycling mobile phones and printer cartridges and organising the collection of second hand items like toys, clothes and books for charities and/or not for profit organisations.
