Recycle for Surrey week is coming

This spring term Recycle for Surrey week runs from 8-14 February 2016

It presents an excellent opportunity for your school to use Wastebuster resources to inspire and engage staff and pupils to improve your school’s environmental profile. This year your school also has an opportunity to take up the Wastebuster challenge.

New Wastebuster challenges for 2016 

These challenges are designed to inspire, inform and engage pupils to waste less and recycle more. Schools can choose which activities to complete, or can work through all of them throughout the school year. Complete just five of the 15 challenges and your school could win the Surrey Wastebuster school of the year award and trophy. 

Why not kick off Recycle for Surrey week with an inspiring Wastebuster assembly, that also happens to be one of the new challenges. 

There are still a small number of challenge support packs available that contain a helpful pupil poster listing all the challenges and a special Captain Busta mascot soft toy made from five plastic bottles. You can order a pack today by emailing Jonathan from Wastebuster.
