Creating sustainable communities through education, action and participation since 1966


Statewide – Recycling Makes Cents.

KESAB on Facebook

Thanks to the Port Augusta City Council, one of our Education Officers, Ali, has spent the week visiting schools in Port Augusta running education sessions including beeswax wrap making, papermaking and recycle relays, plus community beeswax wrap making workshops.

This visit is in conjunction with the roll-out of a FOGO (Food and garden organics) system, which now allows Port Augusta residents to put their food scraps in the green bin! It's fantastic to see our regional cities tackling the issue of organic waste, and we can't wait to see the impact this makes on reducing landfill.🚮🐝 The school has been lucky enough to have Ali from KESAB environmental solutions visit this week. During her visit, the Year 9 class participated in a Beeswax Wrap Making Workshop where they learnt how to make their own beeswax wraps! Our junior classes then learnt all about recycling before participating in a Recycling Relay where they had to race to empty their rubbish and put it into the correct bins.

Great work Ali! ^_^

Old fashioned wood pencils and pencil shavings can go into the green bin, as long as there are no metal or plastic parts. ... See MoreSee Less

I didn’t know that! I assumed the paint on the outside and whatever the coloured part is made out of wouldn’t be compostable. Thanks for the tip!

Just curious about where to put the empty toothpaste..which bin? Rubbish?

Pencil shavings are not a big issue, however other items, like packaging is a far greater problem.

I hate the plastic wrapped pencils ☹

If you register and then can't attend, is there a replay offered at all?
