Campbelltown City Council’s new Mobile Education Van aims to be a silver bullet in the fight to reduce household waste.
‘Silver Bullet’ is the nickname the silver custom-built van has acquired since arriving at Council recently.
Council will officially launch the Mobile Education Van during National Organic Week at two locations in September.
The van, which will be used to deliver waste education initiatives across the Campbelltown Local Government Area, was created through a project funded by the EPA’s Waste Less, Recycle More program.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the ‘Silver Bullet’ presented a unique opportunity to deliver engaging and interactive content to the public at Council events, as well as a younger audience during school visits.
“The van was chosen for its unique and eye-catching appearance, and customised with TVs and iPads to provide an interactive educational experience,” Cr Brticevic said.
It was also designed with sustainability in mind, with all its operations powered entirely by an in-built solar panel. Interchangeable panels on its sides and interior can also be used to display static content, allowing for flexibility.
