What is available?

  • NEW FOR 2021 – Surrey Wastebuster Kids Club helps families get involved in reusing and recycling, with the chance for children to earn a Wastebuster hero badge (made from recycled yoghurt pots).
  • NEW FOR 2021 – Surrey Wastebuster Eco-Badge Book is an online diary of your school’s environmental activities and a record of your achievements. Collected badges contribute to an award status, which in turn can lead to prizes for your school such as Wastebuster Top Trumps and special assembly videos.
  • Teachers resources access media-rich education resources, videos and assemblies, cross-curricular lesson plans, eco-team activities, waste reduction and recycling toolkits with posters and signage. Perfect for waste themed weeks and school waste reduction campaigns.
  • Eco-team activities and toolkits meet fun characters that capture children’s imaginations and bring environmental education to life, play games, go on Wastebuster missions, complete eco-challenges, and get crafty. Wastebuster activities are perfect for an eco-committee or science club to get involved in. A whole year of seasonally themed activities are available to keep even the keenest eco-team engaged.
  • Whole school engagement campaigns – take part in challenges designed to engage the whole community by informing, inspiring and empowering children and their families to reduce waste to care for the environment.
