Community Education

We believe in the value of environmental education and offer a range of resources to teach individuals, schools, councils, and businesses about their roles in waste management and environmental preservation.

We support the environment and communities through education

We recognise that the community has the key role to play in the protection of the environment, but that equally, we have an environmental education responsibility to provide the wider community with the knowledge and tools it needs in our ongoing battle to preserve the environment.

Recycling is not only a great way to help our environment, but it can also be fun! We work closely with many schools, offering fact sheets and information on how to recycle and how to be wise with waste. We also can arrange for schools to visit some of our waste transfer stations, and our Woodlawn Bio-Reactor Facility in Tarago, NSW and the Ti-Tree Bio-reactor in Archerfield, QLD. Contact us if you are interested in arranging a school visit.

In the meantime, check out our waste fact sheets, fun activities or even make your own waste truck below to understand the importance of recycling!

Our talented Education Team in NSW and WA runs The Recoverables Waste Education Program - an interactive and engaging program developed specifically for primary and secondary school students to teach them all about waste sustainability. 

We have a range of assets, which can assist you and your staff to learn more about correct waste management practices and can offer training to stakeholders to help you control correct segregation of waste and increase diversion from landfill.

Veolia works closely with many councils throughout Australia in developing tailor made solutions for their communities waste management plans. We provide councils with relevant recycling and waste collection information on request, to distribute to residents.

For example, in NSW, Veolia developed a suite of educational tools and assets for 13 Northern Sydney and Southern Sydney Councils, to help their residents on the path to better waste management practices.
