The Waste Wise Program
Waste Wise works within schools and within the community,
to educate and show how simple, easy, everyday actions can
make a difference in reducing waste.
Williams Lake and Cariboo Regional District SD 27 and 28 schools
are eligible for the free in-school presentations. There are hands-on
activities for students that include games, worm composting,
interactive displays and art projects. Guided field trips to the
Frizzi Road landfill and Cariboo Disposal Recycling facilities are also
available. Waste Wise also provides expertise and resources to initiate school-wide composting and gardening.
In the community, Waste Wise messages are shared through radio ads voiced by local school children; community newspaper ads and articles; distribution of educational materials (brochures, bookmarks featuring children's artwork); community displays; signage and posters; workshops and presentations; community-enriching projects; and participation in community events. Waste Wise is available to assist organizations and businesses plan and host Waste Wise Events.
If you are a teacher, faculty member, or parent, and you are interested in engaging your kids in a Waste Wise activity, contact the Conservation Society for details.
