Primary School Waste Education Incursion

We partner with Recycle Right to provide a high energy program of interactive, age appropriate activities designed for years 1 through to 6. The incursion aims to teach key messages from the Waste Authority’s ‘Be a GREAT sort’ campaign, encouraging students to gift, recycle, earthcycle, avoid and take waste to the right place, helping to normalise positive waste behaviours.
To read more about this incursion and to book, head over to the Recycle Right Website.
