Recycling: Your Actions Matter*^


Learn how your actions matter by exploring the 3 Rs, what to recycle, where recyclables go, and what recyclables become. When held at Retzer Environmental Learning Center, students will learn what it means to close the recycling loop during our interactive exhibit tour! In the exhibit space, students will visit the eco-house, load recyclables into the truck, operate the mini-recycling facility, deliver recyclables to remanufacturers, and discover how they become new products ready for store shelves (add 30 minutes to program duration).

Minimum of 15 participants required.  For non-partner schools – fees may apply.
