The Problem

We wanted to find out more about how our recycling and waste play a role in our everyday lives. In a addition, we wanted to learn about how the plant sorts through, ships and sells our recyclables, and their affect on the environment.

Our Plan

We planned a tour of the plant and did interactive learning activities.
