Working for a cleaner, more sustainable future is everyone’s responsibility. SUEZ is committed to raising awareness of the importance of recycling and recovery through a host of education programs, tools and events.
The future of our planet depends on the next generation. We’ve developed comprehensive education programs for schools and communities to help develop awareness and commitment to sustainable waste management practices. In addition to our dedicated Education Centres, we open our facilities for educational tours, run workshops in schools and communities and develop classroom resources for teachers.

Getting out into communities
We believe in being active and involved in the communities in which we operate. Supporting and participating in local events and sponsorships is a key way in which we interact with local residents and businesses and keep them up to date on our facilities, operations and new projects.
SUEZ works hard to recover as many valuable resources from waste as we can, but contamination of waste streams can negatively impact on the effectiveness of recycling solutions. Ensuring only the right items go in the right bins – no general waste in recycling bins or recyclables in general waste bins – is critical in optimising recycling and recovery.
Resources for communities
Giving residents the knowledge they need to do the right thing
SUEZ has developed a number of key resources to educate local residents on what to do with waste, partnering with local councils to reduce contamination and increase recycling.
Easy references for residents
SUEZ works with councils to place accessible and engaging waste education materials into the hands of residents. Visually appealing lists, magnets and stickers with simple icons and images are effective tools for residents from diverse backgrounds to understand what can and can’t be placed in each type of bin.
Get smart, Get Sorted™
With our free Get Sorted™ smartphone app, residents can access accurate, up-to-date information about waste and recycling at the touch of a button, at home and on the go. Reliable and cost-effective, it empowers residents to make informed waste disposal choices to reduce instances of contamination. They can also find their closest waste and recycling centres, view bin collection schedules and set reminders for waste collection days.
