At Macquarie Hills Community Preschool we regularly discuss recycling, food scraps, and soft plastics. The children are developing greater understanding and opinions about sustainability. We talk about sorting waste, composting, the use of recyclable materials and how this can benefit our environment. The children have discussed changes in the Lake Macquarie City Council waste management system, and as a result we have chosen to recycle using a four bin system, to better support sorting waste and recycling.
Last week our curbside bins received a 'thumbs up' award because the children have decided to recycle right! Well done sustainability heroes! Our educators have actively supported the children's decisions by helping them research and gather accurate information throughout the process.
