Solid Waste Education Program


Solid Waste Education Program

Jefferson County Public Health offers a variety of fun and informative educational activities suitable for the classroom, day cares, or civic groups like 4-H, Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts.

  • Albatross Diner—what does an albatross eat and what does it have to do with waste? Plastic is everywhere, including in the digestive tracts of albatrosses. Students will learn about the effect marine plastic pollution has on the environment and how they can prevent it.
  • Recycle Relay—student race to finish on sorting recyclables and non-recyclables while discussing opportunities to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Many of these programs meet science education requirements.
