DHS War on Waste

DHS War on Waste

Following the success of the hit ABC TV show, War on Waste, Darwin High Teacher Jodie Clegg and a team of teachers and students have started a movement to Go Green.

On Saturday 22 September, Ms Clegg, her Green Warriors and Waste Free NT conducted a Chaser Style Waste Audit of the DHS skip bins. The waste audit aimed to measure the waste and record data that would allow the team to develop a plan to reduce it.

The team collected 94kg of waste on the day.
