Ever wanted to know exactly where your waste goes, or how to run a low waste household? Do you want to compost like a pro or get the secrets to green cleaning?

Join us for the City’s Earth Carers course. We will uncover the mysteries of waste on a global, national and local level. We will get hands on with waste with interactive sessions, behind the scenes tours and field trips, workshops, demos and giveaways. The course runs for five sessions starting on Wednesday 2 February 2022.

Peg Davies (Lessen with Peg) has worked in the waste industry for several years. Peg's experienced in all things waste, from organics to plastics and litter. Her informative, interactive and friendly workshops will answer all your questions. You will also hear from the City of Cockburn’s Waste Education Team.
