Wellington Waste Heroes is a Wellington City Council led programme helping schools learn about waste minimisation through performances, waste audits, tours to the Southern Landfill and OJI recycling facility. The programme has been running for two years, and includes specialist lessons the students and teachers can choose from like composting, love food hate waste classes, music videos, junk fashion and the science of plastic.
At the end of the programme, support is given to run a whole school project, to achieve an outcome of their choosing. Island Bay School has chosen to receive Wellington City Council recycling bins.
