Waste initiatives

Waste education in schools

The Waste Authority's Waste Wise schools program is for WA primary and secondary schools. It aims to help them with educational strategies for reducing waste while developing positive environmental values in the whole school community.

By becoming an accredited Waste Wise school you will have access to free incursions, grant funding for waste wise projects, and ongoing support.

For more information, please visit the Waste Authority WA website.

Waste education and excursions

The Mindarie Regional Council (MRC) provides:

  • Incursions and excursions for school groups of all ages
  • Information and assistance for school recycling programs
  • A school battery recycling program.

Most services are free for schools within the City of Stirling.

One of the popular MRC programs is 'nude your food’, which teaches young people how to reduce waste in their own lunchboxes.

For more information, please visit the MRC website.

Charity Clothing Drop Off Day

Charity Clothing Drop Off Day

Twice a year the City holds a Charity Clothing Drop Off Day, collecting a range of clothes, textiles, accessories and home goods for donation to charities. Our last Charity Clothing Drop Off Day held in March 2018 saw over 14 tonnes of items donated. Our next event being held in December will be bigger and better with a larger range of items being accepted by the charities taking part.
