Support the Waste Wise Kids initiative!

Our members are a community of like-minded individuals, businesses and community groups that want to support young people learning about waste and sustainability. Our aim is to encourage a sense of belonging and knowledge transfer among our members who are keen to support the education of young people on the issue of waste.

Members support operations via membership fees that generate a recurring and growing revenue stream which will support the national roll out of the Waste Wise Kids programme. We have categorised the memberships into schools, community groups, individuals and have a number of options for businesses.

Make a difference

You can nominate a number of primary schools to embrace the Waste Wise Kids initiative! These may be local schools to you, or schools you already have a connection to. Taught within the classroom by one of our experts or by the teacher, it focuses on educating children about the waste hierarchy and its impact on the environment in a fun, easy to understand way.

(All schools are informed in advance and agreements made prior to booking. Membership restrictions apply)

Our Members

Ashe Group

“When Encore presented Waste Wise Kids to Ashe Construction, we just had to become a member. It’s such a fantastic initiative, educating children in a fun way on the subject of waste, arguably one of the most important environmental issues we face on our planet today. The idea of “Waste Wise Kids in a Box” is very clever, and allows us to demonstrate our credentials as a responsible and sustainable construction company, working alongside educators delivering the Waste Wise Kids programme and donating the boxes that come with the membership to local schools where we are delivering projects.”

Andrew Morris, Business Development Director, Ashe Group
