Managing waste wisely

School Program

Looking for a high energy, interactive waste prevention program filled with age-appropriate activities for kids in Years 1-6? Look no further than WMRC’s Waste Education Days!


The aim is to teach the top five G.R.E.A.T. behaviours of: gifting, recycling, earthcycling, avoiding, and taking, encouraging students to do better than landfill and get waste in the right place. Designed to run the length of a school day, targeting a year group per period, students are divided into small groups and rotated through a suite of activity stations. Open to primary schools located in our Member Councils: Town of Claremont, Town of Cottesloe, Town of Mosman Park, Shire of Peppermint Grove, and City of Subiaco, as well as in our Participating Council – Town of Cambridge.

Do staff and students find it beneficial?

“It was thoroughly enjoyed by all! Everyone, including staff have been regaling the things they have learnt today. Plus, they have been complimenting me on a job well done – it’s you who did all the hard yakka!” -Teacher, Mosman Park Primary School-
