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 from Term 4, 2018. 

Council can assist or you can use our Waste Audit Guide (coming soon) 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. 


Waste and Recycling Colouring Books for your school

Educational Colouring books

Council has a set of 4 colouring books for primary schools to use as a simple educational tool on the importance of managing our waste better.
