Accreditation provides an opportunity for schools to be recognised for their clean, green and sustainable actions through six key focus areas: Litter, Waste, Recycling, Water, Energy and Biodiversity.
"Going above and beyond"
"Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre is going above and beyond what other EECs we've visited are achieving," said David Curtin, chief executive at Keep Queensland Beautiful.
At the unveiling of the recognition signage, David Curtin also spoke about the areas of sustainability (that the centre excelled in) that impressed the judges.
