Don’t Waste It! is an educator guide that includes 11 lessons covering five themes: municipal solid waste, recycling, plastics, composting, and landfills. Don’t Waste It! is for both formal and non-formal educators with lessons for pre-K to 12th graders that can easily be adapted for adult audiences. Each lesson includes a group activity, independent practice, extensions, and additional activities. This workshop will provide a base of knowledge needed to teach each lesson, run through many of the lessons, and each attendee will receive a Don’t Waste It! guide.
This workshop includes a tour of the South Wake Landfill facilities which includes a working landfill, collection center, household hazardous waste center, and more.
