What has your school done to reduce single use plastics?

Email wasteeducation@northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au and tell us so we can add you to this page of wonderful schools!

  • St Kieran’s Primary School Manly has gone plastic straw free at our school canteen (with the exception of Nudie juices). It has been a smooth transition as the students are beginning to understand the negative impact single use plastic has on our environment.
  • Wheeler Heights Public School Single use plastics have been eliminated from the school canteen and replaced with reusable items including long life lunch bags, containers, cutlery and drink bottles. Students place these items in canteen reusable bins after they have eaten, the bins are emptied multiple times per week and the reusables are washed, then reused again in the canteen.
