In order to help you in your Small Green Steps waste management activities, we strongly recommend the Ecobin system. Ecobin was established in Melbourne in 2008 and is a 4 bin waste separation system that helps you sort waste into four categories - Organic, Mixed, Landfill and Paper.


The colour coded soring bins are accompanied by a specific poster for each waste category to help staff and children understand which type of waste can be recycled or sent to landfill.


Ecobins are flat packed thus easier to transport and can easily be put together. The bins start at around $13.95 each and are a great educational tool to teach children the basics of recycling at a young age.
