Wastebuster is an environmental education programme provided free to schools in West Sussex through West Sussex Waste Partnership.
This is your portal to exciting and enriching Wastebuster assemblies, films, cross-curricular lesson plans, homework activities, and toolkits. The programme is designed to bring waste education to life for primary school children and support child-led waste reduction and recycling campaigns in school.
David Attenborough's BBC documentary series, Blue Planet II highlighted the dramatic and concerning effects of plastic pollution on the world’s oceans. This emphasises the importance of waste education to ensure that children and young people are part of the solution.
Wastebuster supports teachers to inform, inspire, and empower young people so they can activate positive change in the classroom, on school grounds and in the home.
Although schools may only generate a small percentage of the world’s waste, they shape 100% of tomorrows population. Teachers tell the stories that set the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation.
We hope you enjoy Wastebusting. Captain Busta and Pong are at the ready to dive into your recycling bins!
