The City of Stirling would like to engage with residents to inform them on how to best use this system to ensure maximum resource recovery and reduce waste going to landfill. Part of this engagement process is to work with schools within the City.
The City is partnering with the Mindarie Regional Council in conjunction with Waste Wise Schools to deliver this important waste education program into local schools. It is proposed to visit every school in the City over the next two years.
The exact make-up of the visit will depend on student (class) numbers and will be developed in consultation with the school and could include:
- School assembly, with a talk on the 3 bin system
- Workshops (preferably to Year 4/5 class groups) that may include a waste audit, talk, activities and games
- Display to support assembly and workshops but also available for other class groups/parents/teachers to view during recess, lunchtimes and times without workshops
- Take home material and information for parents
This program is FREE and will be conducted by experienced presenters/educators. Presenters all hold Working with Children Check.
