Join the #HaltonWasteChallenge! (elementary schools)
Engage in a meaningful, school-wide environmental stewardship initiative while enjoying a fun competition against schools across Halton!
The #HaltonWasteChallenge starts with a workshop for your students, in groups comprising up to three classes. The workshop is available in English and French. The students will make one individual promise to reduce their personal waste and will work together as a school to reduce waste produced at your school. The challenge helps foster a sense of community while you work together towards a common goal, both within your own school and across Halton Region.
After completing the workshop, you will weigh your three waste streams for one week. This is usually done by a group of students with the support of a teacher champion. Participation in the #HaltonWasteChallenge only requires a one-week commitment, but we hope that your school’s waste-reducing efforts will continue long into the future!
