One of our main objectives at Moray Waste Busters is to raise awareness about waste. We have been offering Education Visits to local schools and groups since 2004. We try and inform visitors how to help our local and global environment. We have had great success in the past, hosting visits from over 130 schools and other groups from as far afield as Kiltarlity in the north to Grantown in the south and many points in between.
We do this by explaining the ‘3 R’s’. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
On our site, we practice Reuse and Moray Council are actively Recycling. Showing these in action in a fun, friendly way is how we hope to educate the future generations on waste issues.
Whilst we recommend groups and schools visit our site to experience and see for themselves how we work, we have in the past been invited to different companies, schools and meetings to give talks and speak to larger groups.
So what can you expect when you book your class or group on a visit to Moray Waste Busters?
Visiting Moray Waste Busters
What can you expect on a visit to us? Well, we have a purpose-built Education building which can seat approx 30 children and adults.
We usually start with a short introduction talk. Then our visitors are taken on a tour of Moray Council’s recycling centre and round our site, explaining where recycling actually goes and how we can stop too much going to landfill by reducing how much we buy and by reusing pre-loved items.
Once the tour is complete, usually the children crush a can and look at our Good World, Bad World’ mural before having a short snack break. After this, the children can meet our worms who are natures recyclers and eat organic ‘rubbish’. Alternatively, for older children, a more age-appropriate activity can be provided.
The visit can easily be tailored to suit whatever your class or group is focused on and we have had visits from local nurseries and high schools, so we can easily adapt to age and cover other topics such as renewable energies.
Alternatively, if you run a group, adult or children, we can provide a tour and a talk either on site or at your local meeting point.
MWB do not charge for school or group visits, so if you’d like more information, please contact us.
Remember – one person’s waste is another person’s treasure
