WasteSorted  Schools Program Support in Southern Suburbs

The WA Chapter has secured a contract with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation for the provision of targeted educational strategies for avoidance and recovery of waste in the school context in the southern suburbs on behalf of the DWER for a period of three (3) years from 3 February 2020 to 2 February 2023. Schools will be supported to conduct audits of waste in schools and plan to reduce this over time. Teachers will receive professional support and opportunities to secure grants to assist in projects.
