Through Sustainability Victoria's ResourceSmart Schools program, schools have the opportunity to complete one core module and four elective modules that embeds sustainability across the school facilities, community and curriculum, while saving resources and money for the school. The waste module helps schools minimise waste sent to landfill, recover resources and embed long-term waste management practices into the school and community.
East Gippsland Shire Council's ResourceSmart Schools Facilitator can assist schools in their ResourceSmart journey and provide resources to complete the waste module. Contact the ResourceSmart Schools Facilitator for more information.
Reducing waste in the workplace is not only beneficial for the environment, it can also significantly reduce your overall costs. The war on waste toolkit has been designed by Planet Ark to take businesses step-by-step through the waste journey. You can audit your current waste generation, review process and make the necessary changes to save money and waste to landfill.
