Activity

Bold Park Community School has made an outstanding contribution to the reduction of waste to landfill by opening the Remida Centre in Carine.

“Remida encourages alternative uses and revaluing of the discards of our society”. Focusing on creativity and education, and enabling young people to express their ideas, Remida brings school, industry and culture together in partnership to achieve the common goal of reducing landfill and increasing the uses of valuable resources.

This unique, not-for-profit operation collects waste materials from industries in Perth and makes them available for schools to use in art and craft projects, maths and science. Remida has a wealth of suggestions for how the materials, which include computer parts, cardboard pipes, material scraps, wooden frames, foam, wire, string plastics and rubber, can be used in creative, meaningful and sustainable ways.

Annual Remida memberships to families and schools enable access to all materials, as well as professional support and ideas for projects. Teachers can visit the centre at any time during open hours to collect materials that they would like to use with their class.
