Litter education in schools

In conjunction with Hastings District Council, the Environment Centre delivers targeted education to schools across Hastings District around litter reduction and appropriate rubbish disposal. The programme is tailored to each school's needs, with a range of activities including:

  • litter free lunches
  • litter audits (litter composition where did it come from and how can it be prevented?) and 
  • visits to the refuse transfer stations

This programme aims to teach children about the appropriate disposal of rubbish, and the impacts and social costs of not getting it right.
