The Waste Wise Schools program targets schools in WA with educational strategies for reducing waste to landfill by implementing the 3Rs, reduce, reuse, recycle - while developing positive environmental values in students and the whole school community.
These schools model responsible environmental behaviours through hands-on learning experiences that are linked to the Australian Curriculum.
Waste Wise Schools (WWS) is funded through the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Account and administered by the Waste Authority. It offers resources and support for schools to plan, implement and maintain waste minimising projects such as recycling, composting and worm farming.
WWS helps schools to set up infrastructure and provides resources aimed at changing attitudes and behaviour in regard to sustainable waste management.
The program is provided free of charge and is available to all schools in Western Australia.
For more information on WWS, please contact the Waste Wise Schools coordinator on 6364 6696 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
