The world is facing an ever-increasing solid waste disposal problem. The amount of solid waste we produce is escalating. When improperly handled it poses a threat to our environment. This unit is written to encourage solutions to this problem.
The curriculum and activities introduce the students to the New Five R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle, revise, and respond. We encourage you and your students to learn about solid waste management and recycling. Environmental education will help to create a better world for the generations to come.
