New Plymouth District Council has a range of services on offer to schools and other education centres to assist with waste minimisation and delivering zero waste education to children and young people.
Does your school currently have a compost or worm farm system to deal with your food waste? Our educator can provide guidance on setting this up. Alternatively the Zero Waste Education programme includes a composting unit where students can build their very own mini worm-farm as a learning tool.
If you have an Enviro Group or Green Team at your school and would like to meet with our Education Officer to discuss recycling or any other aspect of waste minimisation or project work related to waste, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Sustainable Taranaki offer educational tours of the Materials Recovery Facility from their inspiring education space. These tours are free to schools and can accommodate up to 30 people. Come along and see our sorting facility in action!
To discuss any aspect of the services on offer please contact our Waste Minimisation Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org
