WEST Sussex schools are being urged to join the nationwide Wastebusters programme for free.
The multimedia teaching aid is designed to make reducing rubbish an exciting part of the curriculum.
Free membership is being offered by West Sussex local authorities, including the county council, and Better Tomorrows.
Deputy leader Lionel Barnard, who is responsible for waste, said: “The Wastebusters programme offers a wide range of guidance and ideas to help teachers and pupils create not only sustainable schools, but also eco-friendly homes and communities.
“It supports schools work towards all levels of Eco-Schools accreditation by providing clear and practical guidance on how schools might embed the principles of sustainable development into the heart of school life.”
