No matter what initiatives we come up with to deal with all the waste, consumerism is increasing and our population is growing. This means the amount of waste we generate could continue to rise.

We recognise the waste problem requires everyone, young and old to get involved and do the right things to help care for the environment.

It’s particularly important we empower future generations to establish the best habits to reduce waste now and into the future, and we are working on ways to support schools on waste avoidance and resource recovery initiatives.

Listed below are a number of resources for schools and thought-provoking videos as a starting point.

Please contact wasteofficer@bmcc.nsw.gov.au to discuss how we can help at your school, or let us know if you're running any successful waste reduction initiatives you'd like to share with the community.
