Waste Education School Programs

Sustainable waste education from pre-school to college and TAFE’s

Our comprehensive waste education school programs complement national and state syllabuses while incorporating local council requirements. We work together with teachers, educational institutions and local councils to deliver interactive and engaging sustainability education sessions to students of all ages and schools. You can check with your local council to see if this program is available for your location, or directly contact your state’s Cleanaway Education Team via the buttons below.

Waste education sessions for educational institutions

Cleanaway offers face-to-face and online waste education sessions for preschool, primary school, secondary school, university and TAFEs in select locations around Australia. All our programs are carefully curated to strengthen knowledge and practice of local council waste management guidelines, support state education syllabus and engage students in sustainable waste management practices whilst fostering a sense of environmental stewardship.

Preschools and primary schools
Young children are naturally curious. They love learning about how stuff works and get a real buzz out of being helpful. Our preschool and primary school programs actively encourage a child’s curiosity and encourage them to participate in household and school waste and recycling efforts. We also show them not only how to make the right choices when it comes to waste, but how to prevent waste in the first place.

Secondary schools
To engage older students, we help them deepen their understanding of the finite nature of our planet’s resources and the huge role sustainability plays. Our program shows how items are made, demystifies the resource recovery and recycling processes, explores bin contamination issues, and most importantly, helps them draw a straight line from their efforts today to a sustainable tomorrow.

Equipping enquiring minds with the knowledge and understanding of good waste management practices helps them help us make a sustainable future possible.
