Waste Education Program in Schools

School visits are conducted by EPA Tasmania on the topics of waste and litter.  Sessions are free, interactive and have a strong ‘hands-on’ component to complement the academic content.  Our staff can cater for the K-10 age group, and with prior consultation, sessions can be developed to be incorporated into existing learning areas. Examples of sessions include hand-made papermaking, litter-critters, creating eco-fashion and exploring e-waste.

All sessions have been developed to be able to meet the requirements of various subjects in the Australian Curriculum and the cross-curriculum priority of Sustainability.  

Teaching resources​ for early childhood have been developed for plastic waste, paper waste and litter​.​


The Environment Protection Authority acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of lutruwita (Tasmania) and pays respect to their Elders, past and present.
