The Recycle More Minnesota campaign is a joint effort between the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), designed to increase recycling in Minnesota through increased awareness about the benefits of recycling and the opportunities available. The purpose of this toolkit is to help schools get a recycling program organized and operating successfully.
Why should your school start a recycling program?
How to create a successful recycling program at your school
If you are ready to start a recycling program, or improve your existing program, the following 12-steps are recommended to get you there!
The Beyond Recycling section includes "Curriculum and teaching resources." Recycle More Minnesota offers curriculum and teaching resources to connect you with simple ideas and easy-to-understand materials, both to integrate recycling issues into your curriculum as well as to make recycling a habit in your classroom.
Visit http://www.recyclemoreminnesota.org/how/school.html for more information and resources on each of these steps.
This toolkit contains many of the best examples and recommendations for schools in our state. In addition, Recycle More Minnesota has established a "Google site" to facilitate the sharing of those resources. From photos to lesson plans and presentations, this is a place where county solid waste professionals and others who assist schools can share resources.
