Education & Resources

Waste Education Resources

In Goulburn Mulwaree we believe in Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle to Reduce our Rubbish!

The best bin is an empty one where waste is avoided or reused... but we're also happy with a full recycling bin and organic waste bin!

For information about Waste Education activities or for advice/assistance, please email or call the Waste Info Line on (02) 4823 4417.

A range of excellent resources are available for educators or groups implementing waste education initiatives. Links are provided below:
