Thanks to everyone who attended our Statewide Local Steps Towards Global Goals workshops and helped make them a fantastic success. We have received very positive feedback and interest from the media, and look forward to working with you all again in the future. You can see a summary of our presenters (and their contact details) here and please let us know if you would like to make contact with other people from the workshop and we’ll try to put you in touch.
Launceston Church Grammar School is building a recycling culture in their school by promoting good disposal practices and introducing co-mingled recycling and composting infrastructure. They are now spending $30,000 less each year in skip bin disposal costs. The junior and secondary schools and the boarding house now recycle well and less contamination is seen as students, staff and parents learn about how to avoid waste and recycle and compost more effectively.
