The City of Bunbury offers a wide range of free educational services, designed to complement our Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery (WARR) initiatives.
We aim to have our City by the sea recognised as a leader in the WARR on waste; to become a sustainable, low-waste, circular economy in which human health and the environment are protected from the impacts of waste.

Check out the resources below to find out more about our programs and for tips to live more sustainably.


The City of Bunbury has partnered with the Keep Australia Beautiful (KABC) in support of the Adopt-a-Spot program.
Do you feel frustrated by seeing litter lying around your street, park or local beach? Then why not adopt that spot and volunteer to help keep your spot litter-free.
Individuals, community groups, businesses or school communities can volunteer with the Adopt-a-Spot program and contribute to a cleaner environment.
You receive free resources to help, insurance cover if you need it and an Adoption Certificate.

For more information about the Adopt-a-Spot program please visit Adopt-a-Spot

Waste Education for Schools

Early Childhood Incursions

This incursion teaches early childhood students about waste through a variety of fun and interactive games and stories, plus a visit from our bin mascots Freddy FOGO or Reggie Recycling.

Primary School Incursions

This incursion teaches students about waste through a variety of fun and interactive games developed by Recycle Right and West Metro Recycling Centre.

The games can be adjusted for age groups to make them more/less challenging. Each session begins and ends with a summary to consolidate student learning.

This program took out the Community Waste Award and Local Government Award at the 2022 WasteSorted Awards.

Secondary School Incursions

Incursions investigate the issue of waste and impacts landfill have on our environment.

Students will identify the importance of reducing and correctly sorting waste by recycling and composting and learn about how to reduce the amount of waste we produce daily. Incursions can be tailored to suit the classes requesting the session.
