There are numerous resources available to help your school or centre clearly illustrate the difference between bins. The key with this is to have an understanding of your waste system, whether it is council collected or private. Signage is most effective when there are images to help viewers quickly process the information. See below for a few resources and let us know of any others we can add to the list.


Check our Council Services page for information and resources specific to your area. A lot of councils provide stickers and pamphlets around what is collected in their bin services.

Para Kore provide printable resources in English and te reo Māori

Teacher Talk have downloadable signage resources for Early Childhood Education Centres.
