We help the next generation of recyclers see the wonder in their waste.
We’ve worked with circular economy experts Planet Ark, to develop our exciting Education Program, aimed at inspiring the next generation of recyclers. Our education program gives students the opportunity to learn about the circular economy, recycling and how they can prevent valuable materials from ending up in landfill. BINGO’s School Education Program is a learning experience designed to increase the knowledge of recycling and materials recovery - changing the way the students think about waste. With curriculum links to STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the BINGO Education Program takes students on a recycling journey that is suitable for students from Pre-School through to Year 12.
Our educational activities
Online Learning Sustainability Session
Can you recycle a house? Students explore the possibility of recycling a house, investigating the process of deconstructing a house and reusing materials to build a new home. We introduce students to the Circular Economy and show them how we can all be more sustainable. This lesson includes, interactive videos, quizzes, and a virtual tour of our Auburn Recycling Centre. Participating students also receive a free workbook and other goodies at the end of the session. This session runs for approximately 1 hour.

Incursion - Recycling at Home and School
This session is delivered in classrooms and education centres. The purpose of this lesson is to educate our future recyclers on practical ways to be more sustainable. We teach kids about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling everyday waste. Students learn how different materials are repurposed through play-based activities. This session runs for approximately 1 hour.

We engage with community organisations at education expos and summits that engage and equip students for positive activism. We set up interactive displays and deliver fun activities such as creating a mini greenhouse, students pledging their commitment to sustainability and ‘Kick it to Win it’ by sorting and separating waste materials.
