RECYCLE MISSION

For this Recycle Mission, we would like you to run a recycling drive at your centre. This will educate families on recyclable materials, and also divert those items from being sent to landfill! Please find below some tips, tools and resources to get you started! 

Our Action Plan is also a useful tool to help plan this activity.

The Ambassadors from Clayfield College (right) introduced EcoBins at their school to separate waste into 5 categories; paper; mixed recycling; soft plastics; organics; and landfill. Click the link below for more information on EcoBins!
