Waste Audits At Your School
Council will be able to support schools within the the local government area to undertake a waste audit at their school.
Council can assist or you can use our Waste Audit Guide and run your own.
The audit will build a picture of what waste the school has and following the audit the school can identify how to reduce waste going to landfill and reducing the impact of their day to day activities.
