The Joseph Banks Secondary College ‘Green Team’ is a committed group of teachers and students across all year levels dedicated to improving aspects of sustainability, waste management and the environment in the school and wider community.
The Green Team recently conducted a ‘Waste Audit’ to assess the school’s current waste management status. The team went through small samples of what is being discarded in bins across the school, determining the quantities of waste which is biodegradable, recyclable and what will be put to landfill. This initiative will educate students more about recycling and sustainability opportunities.
Whilst doing the audit, students were very engaged – who would have thought a group of teenagers would be yelling “bin juice!” in such an excited way!
