Leading the way to cleaner, greener Queensland Schools

19/07/2013

SITA's partnership with Keep Queensland Beautiful is helping to engage and inspire students into taking a proactive approach to recycling and waste management.

SITA and Keep Queensland Beautiful are working together to improve  awareness of waste issues through education in Queensland school students, following a recent study that found Queensland was the most littered mainland state in Australia.

The education program will play an important role in raising students’ awareness of the importance of reducing waste and increasing maximising recycling and resource recovery.

“The last ten years has seen a growing need to engage with community on all levels to increase awareness of waste as an environmental issue. We are proud to play an important role in educating our leaders of tomorrow about responsible waste management”, said Mr Peter Hudson, SITA’s QLD State General Manager.

SITA’s education program WastEd Time™ and Keep Queensland Beautiful’s Cleaner Greener Schools Accreditation initiative the two organisations will work together to teach children the importance of litter prevention, waste reduction and recycling.

Keep Queensland Beautiful CEO, Rick Burnett, said: “As Queensland has been the most-littered mainland state for the past three years, we believe behavior change is vital, and starts in our schools, by educating our children that littering is a thoughtless habit and must be stopped to safeguard our environment.”

Mr Hudson said: “The waste education curriculum is only one component to our commitment to provide innovative waste management education.

“SITA is also partnering with schools across Queensland to ensure they have the right types of recycling bins and learn to separate their paper, plastic, glass and food waste”.

WastEd Time™ is SITA’s in-school recycling and waste education program, designed by experienced educators, that engages and inspires primary-school children to understand the relationship between their waste and the environment.

Keep Queensland Beautiful has implemented its new Cleaner Greener Schools Accreditation initiative to support schools in their aims to reduce litter and waste and to promote recycling.
