Whitehorse City Council

Train-the-trainer sessions

A Waste Education Officer will visit your school to deliver a 30-45 minute waste and recycling themed session to student leaders or staff.  The session covers:

  • What happens to our waste and recycling after the kerbside
  • The what and why of accepted items in the recycling bin 
  • Helpful tips on engaging others with the recycle right message
  • There is the expectation that knowledge gained from session and tours will then be passed on to other students, staff and parents. This can be achieved through a variety of measures, including:
  • Newsletter article on learnings from the session
  • Self-delivered follow-up sessions to other students 
  • Holding a recycling stall at events.

To assist you in spreading the word, Council has a selection of resources available.
