Recycling at Aspley Special School began in 1983 with can crushing as a work experience option. Since that time, ‘can crushing’ has been transformed into one of the largest (by volume of product recycled) school-based recycling program, processing over tonnes of recyclables and providing training opportunities for many students with disability.

At some point during their schooling career, Aspley Special School students will engage in recycling-related skills training, including e-waste processing, can crushing, glass sorting, lid removal, stamp recovery, tree planting and mulching. All students regardless of their ability are involved.

Students are expected to operate within a work-like environment and complete designated tasks, follow expectations, work within set procedures and adhere to WH&S standards. Students develop and practice valuable life and employment-related skills including staying on task, adhering to quality control measures, exhibiting safe behaviours and displaying acceptable work ethics. These skills can subsequently be refined and transferred to a range of work and supported work environments.

We always welcome volunteers to help out, school groups to visit and learn about recycling and the following recyclable donations:

  • Electronic equipment e.g. Computers, laptops, TVs
  • Aluminium cans and steel
  • Stamps and envelopes
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Whitegoods, hot water systems
  • Car batteries
  • Food vegetation scraps for our Brisbane City Council Community Composting Hub.
Please Note: We are no longer accepting cardboard, newspapers or pamphlets
