Workshops, Talks & Tours

Council's Waste Department hosts a number of workshops, talks and tours for City of Ryde residents to help them learn how to reduce their waste. These events are free but registrations are essential. Bookings open one month prior to the date of the event. 


Learn how to reduce up to 50% of your rubbish output, save money and reduce water consumption in the garden by setting up your own compost bin or worm farm.

DIGITAL Plastic-free Life Workshop

This workshop looks at the ways to eliminate plastic from our lives by suggesting alternatives to common products and demonstrating how to make safe, beeswax-infused food wraps.

DIGITAL Green Cleaning Workshop 

Did you know that instead of using harmful store bought cleaning chemicals you can use natural, biodegradable substances as cleaning aids to make your home clean and safe to be in? The good news is most of these natural ingredients are already in your pantry so you will also be reducing waste and saving money.

DIGITAL Meal Planning and Food Waste Avoidance Workshop

Meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste by only buying what you need. This is especially important in the lead up to Christmas which is traditionally one of the most wasteful times of the year.
