War on Waste – Litter Free Lunches

Date: February 14, 2018

We are excited to introduce campus-wide waste streaming from next term with the dual aim to create a cleaner school and to be better stewards of the environment. New waste streaming bins have been purchased and will be installed across the College in the coming weeks. We will also educate our students about these changes and what this will mean for them.

A waste audit last year revealed that our College produces enough landfill in a year to cover the oval to a depth of 30cm. We can dramatically reduce this by recycling more of our waste, composting what we can and being more thoughtful about the wrappings and plastic packaging that come with the foods we purchase.

Our Little Learners, Prep children and their families are already experts at reducing waste with litter free lunches – we are now asking the rest of the College to help support the War on Waste within our community so that we can all do our part. The idea is that wrappings and plastic packaging that would end up in landfill are not included in children’s lunches from home. Our tuckshop will also make some changes by utilising compostable containers as much as possible in place of plastic. We had a major launch with Secondary students today and will provide tips and ideas for parents in the upcoming weeks in the lead up to Term 2 on litter free lunches.
