LIT­TER LESS

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

On June 9, stu­dents from Mead­ow­bank Pri­mary School and the As­so­ciate En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter, Scott Simp­son launched a new cam­paign in an aim to ‘‘Lit­ter Less Re­cy­cle More’’. The joint cam­paign by Love NZ and Be a Tidy Kiwi is to en­cour­age New Zealan­ders to think about their waste. The cam­paign is the first na­tional and com­mu­nity aware­ness pro­gramme about lit­ter since the 1980s. It will be linked to a na­tional be­havioural change pro­gramme and in­vest­ment in new and up­graded rub­bish and re­cy­cling in­fra­struc­ture that uses smart tech­nol­ogy to min­imise over­flow and re­duce col­lec­tion costs. Mead­ow­bank Pri­mary School is the first pri­mary school in New Zealand to have suc­cess­fully re­flected ‘Be­yond Green Gold,’ in­di­cat­ing its progress as a sus­tain­able En­vi­roschool.
