Managing waste wisely

WMRC Waste Watchers

The WMRC Waste Watchers Program is a collection of workshops and upskilling events designed to give you the skills to live a low-waste, sustainable life.

You spoke, we listened… our recent Waste Survey results indicate that you want to create less waste, but find it tricky and time-consuming. Our new hands-on, interactive Waste Watchers Workshops take these factors into consideration. Do one workshop. Do them all. The choice is yours!

Introducing Waste Watchers Workshops:

  •  A short, engaging yet informative introduction to the world of waste and what you can do to minimise your impact.
  • In addition to short workshop sessions, residents will also have the opportunity to go on facility tours to see where the waste and recycling goes after it has been collected from your kerbside (facility tours will be announced separately) .
  • Speak to the experts and get all your waste and recycling questions answered plus find out where you can go to access more information.
  • Join your local community as you achieve your waste reduction goals, with follow-up and support throughout.
