The ‘104 or More Clean-up Club’ challenge is an ongoing partnership with Brisbane City Council (BCC) to address litter in public places. The team will meet with the ambassadors early on to assist their planning, and on the day will be there to provide:
risk assessment (prior to event)
litter tools on the day (littler collectors and hoop bags)
a number of the equipment for the school to loan.
It is easiest to email us and we’ll put you in touch with the correct person!
HOW IT WORKS
Arrange a time for Brisbane City Council to visit the ambassadors and start planning! Work through our Clean Up Club plan with the Litter Team to help get the ball rolling. They have also provided a Risk Assessment.
The team will leave behind a few litter collection tools to help you with the next step...
Spread the word to encourage students to participate! You could present on assembly with your tools from BCC, make posters, and write in your school newsletter.
Announce the date, time and meeting location and maybe talk about key litter items or areas you will be focusing on, and why picking up litter is so important!
We also encourage you to personally invite staff, cleaners, and groundspeople...
Check out our templates provided by Bulimba State School!
It's Clean Up day! BCC arrive at the school and the EcoMarines Ambassadors are responsible for:
1. Welcoming BCC staff, instruct BCC where they’d like the table/equipment set up
2. Assisting with the set-up and distribution/collection of cleaning tools and bags
3. If you decided to do an audit on the day, ambassadors will help facilitate the post-clean-up discussion about the rubbish collected. Some rubbish will be examined to see what the main items were, how can we reduce those items, etc.
After the clean-up, Brisbane City Will provide the school with a bundle of '104 OR MORE' bags (bottom right picture). The EcoMarines can hand these out in the playground when they see good behaviour relating to litter to continue the conversation and to change attitudes within the school.
Ambassadors present at assembly with photos and results of the clean-up. What items did you find? Did a lot of students help clean-up? What did you learn? Encourage students to continue picking up litter!! Brisbane City Council will kindly loan a number of collectors and hoops to make this easy.
Encourage school to write article for school e-newsletter and include in their social media with #104ormore
If you are doing this challenge, we encourage you to do our Waste Warrior Challenge at the same time :)
