School Waste Education Days
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 award-winning School Waste Education Days!
How does it work?
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.
Who are the GREAT games for?
Originally created for Primary School aged students, Years 1-6, the GREAT Games can be adapted for use with secondary schools and adults. The games can also be hired for special community events held within our Member Councils. Find out more on our Low Waste Equipment Hire page here
