Don't Waste Mt Stirling
This winter Resort Management will be trialling an innovative project that aims to reduce littering in remote locations on Mt Stirling. School and outdoor education groups using Mt Stirling for overnight trips through winter will be given the opportunity to participate in the project. There are no costs involved to participate in this project.
The Waste Kit was developed to be complimentary to delivery of environmental education and outdoor education activities. Building on the ethic of carry in carry out and leave no trace, the Waste Kit will assist groups with effective separation of waste streams whilst camping and ensure our unique alpine environment remains waste free.
Participant groups will be provided with a lightweight Waste Kit to use throughout their Mt Stirling adventure. Waste Kits contain: colour-coded compostable collection bags for separation of waste, recycling and organics streams; dry bags for clean storage of collection bags; educational and instructional materials. Designed with our harsh winter in mind, the Waste Kit is both durable and lightweight. A collection point will be established at Telephone Box Junction for disposal and return of the kit. Groups will be encouraged to publically commit to ‘Don’t Waste Mt Stirling’ at a public art display on Mt Stirling.
To participate in the program this coming winter, or for more information, please contact Tom Kelly on the details below. We look forward to seeing you on Mt Stirling this winter!
