The Waste Wise Schools program provides support to schools across Western Australia (WA) to promote responsible waste management behaviours, with a focus on waste avoidance and recovery. It also develops positive environmental values in students and the whole school community.
Waste Wise Schools (WWS) is a State Government program administered by the Waste Authority. It offers resources and support for schools to implement projects such as recycling, composting and worm farming. Many schools find these activities provide meaningful, hands-on learning experiences that are linked to the Western Australian Curriculum.
The Waste Wise Schools program is provided free of charge and is available to all schools in WA.
