Interesting Tidbit:

The children of Maitland begin their environmental sustainability at a young age with daycare groups participating in hands-on activities about waste and recycling, or water and stormwater. Following a simple presentation children work with their educators to implement programs and activities to minimise water use in centres and divert waste from landfill and go on to have a positive influence on behaviour in the home.
