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 is a program of the Waste Authority and offers resources and support for schools to plan, implement and maintain waste minimising projects such as recycling, composting and worm farming.
The program helps schools to set up infrastructure and provides resources aimed at changing attitudes and behaviour in regard to sustainable waste management.
The program is FREE and available to all schools in Western Australia.
Information in this section of the Authority's website is primarily aimed at teachers but does cater for students. You can contact the Waste Wise coordinator on 64675167 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out our facebook page...
