How does the process work?

Please note, collections are only available to mainland UK schools and community groups.

  1. Sign up to Science into Schools and book your first collection date by clicking on the 'Join in' button above
  2. You will receive an email from Wastebuster with login details for your account to book future collections and spend your points
  3. You can change your collection date if you need to via the Wastebuster site:
  4. Once your collection date has been confirmed, we'll send you a pack with posters, leaflets and collection bags
  5. Ask everyone in your school and local community to bring in their unwanted textiles for recycling on your collection date
  6. Your textiles will be collected and taken to be sorted and weighed.
  7. You'll receive an email notifying you of how many science points you've earned - 1 point = 1p
  8. Go to the Wastebuster exchange store to choose the science equipment you want to buy with your points
  9. Don't miss out - we are offering an additional £500 worth of science points to the first three schools that collect one tonne of textiles from collections held between 1 January 2015 until 31 December 2015. Terms and conditions apply.
