Monash University student hard waste collection

Monash Uni hardwaste collection

This project funded two hard waste collections for Monash University students living in the Monash municipality during 2017 and 2018

International students helped to promote the program to other students through a Facebook page, door knock to residents, surveying students and promotion through flyers, a video and word of mouth.

The program was promoted on the Monash University screens, the international students newsletter and through the off campus accommodation communications. Real estate agents were contacted and asked to promote to their tenants.

Collections took place from 146 households. Since the completion of the project, Council is working with Monash University to continue to educate students and promote the right ways to dispose of unwanted materials.

The project was funded with a $14,000 Sustainability Victoria Litter Innovation Fund Grant.
