Three ways your kids can keep Brisbane clean and green  

REduce waste

Do you have kids who want to lead the way with reducing waste and recycling? Brisbane City Council has a range of educational workshops and programs open to kids of all ages to help inspire them to keep Brisbane clean and green. 

From kindergarten programs, primary-level waste education workshops and high school networks focused on sustainability and environmentalism, there are many way educators and students can be empowered to create change by reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
