City of Boroondara ‘Waste Smart Schools and Families’ Pilot

Gould League in partnership with City of Boroondara is delivering an exciting waste minimisation pilot project to ten schools and early education centres in Boroondara. The project has been supported with funding from the Metropolitan Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Fund. Additional project support is being provided by Sustainable Resource Use (SRU).

Welcome aboard:

– Auburn South Primary School

– Canterbury Primary School

– Fordham Avenue Kindergarten

– Camberwell Primary School

– Glen Iris Primary School

– Fintona

– Trinity Grammar

– Greythorn Early Childhood Centre

– Samantha’s Childcare and Early Learning Centre (update: withdrew from program)

– Minifie Park Early Learning Centre (update: withdrew from program)

The aim of the Waste Smart Schools and Families Project is to test new approaches to engaging schools, early education centres and their families in practices and behaviours to reduce waste going to landfill (especially organic waste), as well as recycling.

Schools and early education centres taking part in the pilot will be accredited in the ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic Waste Module and will achieve partial completion of the ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic Core Sustainability Module.

A series of take-home activities and fun interactive games will be available for families to use with their children to explore and learn more.
