About Us

​EERST runs environmental programmes and waste assessments for schools, councils and businesses. You will see much about these programmes on this site, they are; the Paper4trees Programme, the Water4schools Programme and the Energy4schools Programme.

We also speak directly with community groups and work with local councils to give practical, simple solutions to their waste problems. Aside from pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars directly into the community, the trust cuts environmental, financial and social costs associated with waste.

Other things we do are:

  • Design and implement zero waste programmes

  • Provide cleaner production services

  • Conduct waste audits for schools, businesses and local government

  • Assist with carbon zero projects

  • Work to reduce climate change through tree planting

  • Manage behaviour change programmes
