Limestone Coast team rises to Carbon Challenge

Sep 07, 2012

Staff and students at the TAFE SA Mt Gambier Campus are celebrating a state-wide win in the TAFE SA Regional Great Carbon Challenge. Mt Gambier’s Keen to be Green team beat 11 other teams by developing numerous initiatives to help reduce the campus carbon footprint.

The Keen to be Green team won points by gaining staff pledges to reduce electricity, water and resource use and to increase recycling rates. Keen to be Green organised an e-waste collection, gathered compostable waste from around the campus to produce mulch for the gardens, and produced a video to publicise the composting process.

Facilities team leader, Robbie Ransom, said that he was really happy with the win and the effort shown by all staff was fantastic. “Now that we have introduced these changes it is important that we keep educating others to follow, especially the recycling of paper, cardboard and the separation of food waste. The removal of rubbish bins under desks has been a challenge, but staff are starting to realise the benefits of separating their own rubbish at designated recycling stations”, said Mr Ransom.

Coinciding with the Carbon Challenge TAFE SA Regional has been shortlisted for a prestigious Australasian Green Gown Award. 

TAFE SA Regional Managing Director, Denise Janek, said, “This is the second year running that TAFE SA Regional has been nominated for an Australasian Green Gown Award. The Mt Gambier Campus has played a major role this year in raising the national profile of the Great Carbon Challenge. Staff and students are to be congratulated for their creativity, persistence and hard work.”

The winner of the Australasian Green Gown Award will be announced at the Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability Conference in Brisbane on 27 September 2012.
