Council offers residents of Sutherland Shire a range of free 'waste wise' workshops to help reduce landfill.

Bookings open three weeks before the workshop, and some are delivered online via Zoom.

Participants also receive a free compost bin or worm farm at the end of the workshop (limit of 1 per household).
