School recycling

Brisbane City Council offers recycling bins, education programs and resources to help schools implement waste minimisation practices.

The Waste Smart Kindy Program is an initiative for early learning centres and services in Brisbane. The Program encourages early learning centres or services to make changes to increase resource recovery and decrease the amount of waste being sent to landfill.


Waste programs for schools

Council provides programs, services and support to help schools minimise their waste, including Rethink Your Rubbish, the Towards Zero Waste Education Centre and organic recycling workshops.


Recycling bins for schools

Schools that have a waste collection service with Council can apply for Council's school recycling service.
