TitleWelcome

The West Sussex Wastebusters home learning website is jam-packed with enriching, child-led waste prevention and recycling focused activities.

Your children can enjoy learning about waste prevention and recycling by completing quizzes, treasure hunts, crafts, cooking and more. Busta and crew are on hand with brand new videos and tips to support, guide and entertain young Wastebuster Cadets throughout their mission!

Become a Wastebuster Cadet to make a real difference by reducing waste and “Recycling It Right”.

Children completing the home learning activities will earn Wastebuster Cadet badges and have opportunities to win fantastic prizes. If they wish, children can share their work with other children, via the online gallery.

The home learning activities will be available to families to access and enjoy throughout the summer holidays.
