Number 70: Set up a recycling and composting initiative at daycare centre

I help out at my daughter’s daycare centre each week and have noticed not only that they produce a lot of waste on a daily basis, but also that a lot of it could be diverted from landfill.

So, I set up a recycling and composting system: which will hopefully not only reduce the centre’s environmental impacts, but also engage staff and children in more sustainable waste management behaviours.

I donated a composting bin, a bucket for food waste, another bin to collect recyclables, and bought (another) domestic recycling container that council empties on a weekly basis, and I have promised to empty the waste food bin each day as well as take all the recyclables home with me biweekly, so they can be collected and recycled.
