Waste Education Program
The NWA provide educational waste sessions to the local primary schools through out the Pilbara. Our program covers a range of topics including:
The sessions go through several activities with the students including a presentation explaining the 3 R’s, ‘A Waste Audit’ Video – a primary school demonstrates what happens to waste, what they can do to reduce their waste in their lunchboxes, students then participate in and conduct their own school waste audit – and several waste related games.
NWA provide these sessions free of charge to schools, as part of our initiative to give back to the communities in the Pilbara where we operate including Newman, Port Hedland and Karratha.
The NWA participates in helping communities clean up Country once a year throughout the Pilbara. We work in partnership with local communities to help them collect and dispose of waste.
This includes working side by side on a volunteering basis with Ranger programs to pick up rubbish that may be damaging to heritage sites.
