Waste Pioneers Program
Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Large Business category
First run for the Shire of Campaspe, the innovative and engaging Waste Pioneers Program teaches school students about waste and recycling in a fun and interactive way, covering off sustainability principles of waste hierarchy and the circular economy, environmental stewardship and community leadership.
Eight local schools participated in the 6-week program, beginning with an interactive presentation from Veolia at each school, they then pitched an innovative upcycle solution and visited Veolia’s local site, to see where recyclable waste ends up.
