Managing our waste is a challenge that people have dealt with since the beginning of time. A more informed citizenry both has the potential to come up with better solutions to our waste problems and knows the importance of generating less waste in the first place. In the Waste and Recycling Investigation, you will learn how to manage school waste. You will discover how much waste your school generates, as well as learn where the waste goes. You will also investigate school waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting efforts.
