Free School Recycling Service
Queensland schools are aiming to reduce their ecological footprint, as part of the Earth Smart Environmental Sustainability Strategic Plan 2008 - 2012. One of the strategy goals is to reduce their waste sent to landfill by 50 per cent.
To assist schools to achieve their waste reduction goals, Gold Coast City Council will provide all Gold Coast Schools with a FREE recycling collection service if they have a waste collection service with the Gold Coast City Council.
To support your school when introducing the recycling bins, Gold Coast City Council will also provide:
- A visit by a waste collection technical officer to help determine the needs of your school, including the number, size and type of bins required. The officers will also advise on Workplace, Health and Safety issues, including bin placement and types of bin lift equipment available.
- Support material, including stickers for your bins and PDF files for uploading on your website to assist parents and students with recycling information.
- Education support for students and staff through the FREE Wipe Out Waste Program.
If your school would like to find out more information about how to take advantage of this free service, please call the Waste Collection team on 5581 6799.
