2018 Expressions of Interest - Register Now

The Limestone Coast Local Government Association (LCLGA) together with the seven Councils in the Limestone Coast Region will once again run a School Waste Reduction and Recycling Challenge.

The Limestone Coast School Waste Reduction and Recycling Challenge is a challenge that will be held for the second time from 5th March to 6 April 2018. It is open to all kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in the Limestone Coast.

The competition aims to engage students in the design and implementation of strategies that promote waste reduction and recycling in schools. Schools will report on recycling and general waste data, then ranked according to which school collects the following:

  1. the least general waste

  2. the most recyclables

  3. the least amount of general waste and recycling generated.

  4. the highest amount of waste composted

Schools can enter as many categories as they like.

The competition is conducted on a per capita basis to allow schools of different sizes in the region to participate. Every week, schools report their data.

This “School Waste Reduction and Recycling Challenge” is part of a campaign driven by LCLGA’s Regional Waste Management Coordinator, June Saruwaka, which encourages schools to reduce the amount of recyclable material ending up in landfill.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three schools in each category as well as regional recognition in the local newspapers.

First prize - $1,000

Second prize - $500

Third prize - $250

Expressions of Interest is now open and closes on the 23rd February 2018. Please complete the expression of interest by registering for the event.
