The initiative has been supported by the whole school community, with 470 students food waste each day going to the 6 wonderful chickens we have in the 'Chicken Palace' so kindly built by one of our students family, and lovingly cared for by our students. Each week the College's soft plastic waste is recycled by Redcycle at Coles, of which students take accountability for, and recycling and landfill is managed by external agencies. Waste audits are held each term to track the success of the Waste Warriors waste free lunchboxes focus and the minimal waste canteen so that not only students but also staff can track the amount of waste that we are diverting from landfill. The SMC Waste Warriors play an integral role in educating others in the school and community about the need to reduce our waste.
