Halve Your Household Waste

  • Canberra Environment Centre Cnr Lennox Crossing and Lawson Crescent Acton ACT 2601 (map)

"One week = one shopping bag full of rubbish.  There are two adults and three children in the house.  Our challenge has been set.  Impossible!  I hear you say.  Well here's how we did it".  

That's Mia Swainson, environmental engineer and lifestyle writer for HerCanberra.  Mia set her young and busy family a challenge to significantly reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill each week, and succeeded!  Join Mia in this free workshop and go home with simple and practical tips for reducing, reusing and recycling with your family.  Mia will walk you through the basics of waste separation, worm farming, keeping chickens and more.
