Schools can have a positive impact on their environment and community. They can reduce their rubbish, encourage walking or biking and reduce their water and energy use.

Schools can also take part in the Council's Learning Through Action education programme and host evening classes on sustainability and home composting. Here are some ways schools can take action.

Reduce waste

  • Recycling: the Council provides free recycling services to schools and early childcare centres.
  • Composting: the Council provides free composting workshops for students, teachers and parents.
