School Waste Management Plan

In order to assist schools to not only recycle waste, but also to avoid and reduce waste within schools, HRR has developed a Schools Waste Management Plan. This plan will assist schools in developing short term and long term goals in terms of waste reduction. Call the Recycling Hotline for more information.

Waste Audit Kit

A waste audit helps students take ownership and understand waste in their school and is a great start for any whole school waste reduction and recycling program.  The findings can be analysed to target focus areas, identify problems and points of interest and brainstorm strategies to reduce and better manage that waste. These ideas can then be communicated to the whole school community to encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle right. It is an ideal problem-based learning strategy to engage students with real world issues. An audit kit including tarps, tongs, gloves, buckets and spring scales is available for schools from our member Councils to borrow by calling the Recycling Hotline.

Classroom Activities provides lots of teaching ideas linked to KLAs.
