Project partner: Caulfield Primary School



Reducing waste generated and sent to landfill reduces costs and the impact on our environment. Our Community Recycling Hub will enable secure collection and re-purposing of items that cannot be recycled in kerbside systems, e.g. batteries, CDs, light globes and soft plastics. Ongoing collection is provided for 3 years. Upgraded composting facilities and an education program for volunteers of all ages and cultures to use and maintain the systems will ensure better connection of the school to local groups and businesses within our community. The project will be launched at our "zero waste" Caulfield Primary School Fete in March 2019.

Our recycling and composting hub will create an accessible community space within our school to transfer reusable and recyclable items that are unable to collected in kerbside systems. Engaging local volunteers of all ages to co-design the space, learn new skills and maintain the school facility will increase cooperation and build social connectedness. Connecting more of the local community to the school space will enable better use of the facility and improve maintenance in school holiday periods. A local movement to reduce landfill and harvest resources will tangibly demonstrate how to reduce impact on our environment to the wider community.

THis is a great project, and a great local school. We need the next generations to be more aware, and more proactive about environmental issues, and this is the way to go about it.
