Students at Hallett Cove Preschool are among a growing number of groups learning the right way to recycle as part of City of Marion’s waste and recycling education program.

More than 100 workshops and presentations have been delivered to kindergartens, schools and community organisations on the three-bin system, composting and worm farming in the past year.

City of Marion education officer waste and recycling Allison Byrne said teaching children about recycling helped educate adults.

“Children are often the teachers of their parents, so it’s important to spread the word through schools and kindies,” Ms Byrne said.

“Hallett Cove Preschool has sustainability embedded into its curriculum, so the kids are naturally enthusiastic and we have had great fun showing them which materials go in which kerbside bin.City Limits - Oct 14 - Issue 46 - Kindy kids recycle right
