The Waste Warriors Make a Difference

Students and staff across Suncoast Christian College are taking a stand in the war against waste. Determined to make a change, the school has implemented many new strategies to reduce their environmental impact.

The school discovered they produced enough landfill in a year to cover their oval up to the depth of their knees. The school has installed three bin waste streaming systems throughout the campus, allowing students to delegate their waste into either, ‘landfill, recycling or compost’. Additionally, the school has introduced an onsite composting system by installing the ‘OSCA Composter’.

The next step for students is to show initiative, and improve their practice. The new programs along with the continual change of habits within the school community, means Suncoast is bound to significantly reduce the amount of waste they are producing per year.
