Waste Education

We are committed to best practice waste management and have an Environmental Education and Projects Officer available to deliver free presentations and workshops to promote recycling and ethical waste management practices for residents, community groups and schools.

 Types of Free Presentations

Waste education presentations and workshops available include the following topics:

  • The Three Bin Kerbside System
  • Recycling - the importance of recycling right
  • What happens to waste once it leaves the kerb
  • Electronic Waste and Tricky Waste
  • Waste minimisation and avoidance
  • Composting and Worm Farms
  • Smart Shopping: Buying Green

Sessions are interactive, fun and flexible, and can be tailored to suit the needs of your group. You can combine any one of the above topics to suit your specific questions about waste. Sessions are normally 40-50 minutes, but can be as short as a 20-30 minute talk, right through to a longer 2 hour workshop, depending on your needs.
