Waste Education Program

The Shire has a Waste Education Program to help residents to avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle their waste. 

Primary School Waste Education Sessions

The Shire is running a limited number of FREE waste education incursions to primary schools for Terms 3 and 4 in 2017. 

Schools can choose from three topics;

  • Waste Wise Shopping
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  • Litter in the Environment 

Thanks to a great response from the schools, these sessions are now FULLY BOOKED for 2017. 

Kerbside Bin Inspection Program

From September 2017, a series of kerbside bin inspections will be carried out across the Shire. If your bins have been inspected, you will receive a tag providing feedback and information about recyclable items. 

The aim of these inspections is to help educate residents on what items belong in which bin, in order to reduce bin contamination and increase actual recycling rates. The inspection program will also help the Shire to understand how our community are performing in the areas of rubbish and recycling.
