"There's no such thing as away."
author unknown

Is It Recyclable?

Students bring to school five items they would normally throw away and five items they would normally recycle.  Expert groups are formed to present information on the recycling of glass, metal, plastic, and organics such as paper and food waste. Classroom activities stress that many things we throw away can be recycled and some things we try to recycle will be thrown away. The Family Page extends this learning to the community by challenging families to increase recycling efforts at home.

This inquiry was inspired by Wright Gwyn, Director of Environmental Awareness and Recycling for the city of Forest Park.
