Litter Education in Schools

Run in conjunction with Hastings District Council's Keeping Hastings Beautiful programme for the general public, 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 (what's the litter comprised of, 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.
