The ReDiscover Hub will provide free waste minimisation and sustainability programmes for schools across the Selwyn District from late February 2023!

These programmes are hands-on, interactive and feature solutions-based activities for all ages.

Our programmes have been designed around the Waste Hierarchy and are separated among the top four tiers, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover. Interwoven is the concept of the Circular Economy. By using the Waste Hierarchy and the Circular Economy models within our programmes we can compare current economic systems to future ones.

Our on-site programmes are targeted towards primary, intermediate and high school students and are based at the Pines Resource Recovery Park. We make use of this unique learning environment by providing place-based learning within a working resource recovery park and large-scale composting facility.

Our outreach programmes are targeted towards early childhood students and provide kaimahi and tamariki with an opportunity to investigate waste management and reduction practices within their own classroom.
