Important Update: In light of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, as a precautionary measure we are postponing our waste education activities until further notice. This includes our visits to schools, community groups and businesses; tours of Tamala Park and our Resource Recovery Facility; and our Earth Carers program. This is in line with State and Federal advice to limit non-essential gatherings in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
The Mindarie Regional Council (MRC) was established to assist the seven Local Government Councils of: Cambridge, Joondalup, Perth, Stirling, Victoria Park, Vincent and Wanneroo to deal with their waste.
The MRC has experienced waste education staff available to assist schools with their sustainability programs focussing on waste, in particular the
‘reduce, reuse, recycle and dispose wisely’ message.
Just look at what we can do for you
You can visit us
We run tours of our facilities which include the Tamala Park landfill site and the Resource Recovery Facility (composting) at Neerabup. See where your waste goes and discuss what you can do to minimise your waste and its effects.
There is an Education Centre at Tamala Park with demonstrated projects for recycling. This includes worm farming, composting, sheet mulched garden beds, creative art work from junk and more.
The Visitor’s Centre at the RRF shows the process of converting ‘green or red lidded household bin’ waste into compost at the facility and its subsequent use with interactive gand displays.
We can come to YOU
|Members of our team can visit schools for talks, demonstrations
and workshops on all aspects of waste, including: organics recycling,
waste minimisation, ‘what goes into what bin’ activities,
Nude Your Food (waste free lunches) and bin audits.
These visits can be tailored to meet the needs of students (all year groups), the school staff or parent groups.
