Waste Programs

Mosman Council offers a number of waste and sustainability programs to schools and the local community.

Here is a preview of a program run with Mosman Council Vacation Care students. Lead by Angela Van Boxtel, children learn to rethink plastic and transform discarded plastic bags into colourful sealife.

Mosman Council’s Programs

Mosman Council’s Environment and Sustainability Officers can bring the following programs to your school:

  • Environmental auditing – waste, water, energy and biodiversity
  • Offer assistance for the Solar My School Programme
  • EcoGardening Workshops – composting, worm farming, waste reduction and recycling
  • Tree Planting to create habitat for local fauna

Here is a preview of the Waste to Music program where Mosman After School Care students worked to produce a unique sound from items that are normally thought of as rubbish.

For further information about school programs, workshops and educational material, please contact Environmental Education Officer on 9978 4024.
