Council's Education Officer offers school visits suitable for K-10 on waste topics including worm farming and recycling and new waste management technology. Assistance in conducting a school waste audit is available. Waste auditing offers students a hands on learning experience, as well as providing valuable data for waste management planning. Council's Education Officer can also assist with the waste minimisation component of your school's environmental management plan (semp).
Each year during National Recycling Week Council invites a school to participate in the Landfill Open Day or Trip to the Tip. Students are taken on a tour of the Waste Transfer Facility to track the contents of their yellow recycling bins, and then to the Grafton Regional Landfill to see what happens to general waste from their red bins. Here they are treated to a performance of the mobile waste education unit the Greenhouse.
