Schools: Educational Resources

Lesson Plan

We’ve developed a 30-minute lesson plan for K-5 classes to help children understand the importance of recycling and composting, and what types of materials go into each of the different colored containers. You can customize the lesson plan to your grade level—from cutting out pictures that children can match to bins, to the scientific definitions of the composting process. You can download the lesson plan here.

Free Posters, Stickers

You can download posters or you can order them from us free of charge. And be sure to order stickers you can use on the bins or other places to remind people what to put in the different colored bins.
