Bus Subsidies

A bus subsidy is offered to schools and community groups from the MRC region to help with the hire of a bus used to visit our facilities.

This subsidy is provided by the MRC and its member councils (Cities of Joondalup, Perth, Stirling, Vincent and Wanneroo, and Towns of Cambridge and Victoria Park) to assist residents to learn about waste, what happens to it and what can be done to generate less of it.
