Waste education

Waste education sessions 

Council is dedicated to empowering the community to practise good recycling habits and waste minimisation techniques to reduce waste to landfill.

If you are a school, community group, local organisation or workplace, you can request a tailored waste education training session presented by Council’s Waste Education Officer.

Session topics include:

  • Using the four-bin system and correctly sorting waste
  • FOGO (Food Organics Garden Organics)
  • Waste reduction and minimisation

Other topics may be available on request.

To arrange a session, register your interest by completing our waste education session request form and our Waste Education Officer will contact you.
