A 20 minute video is available for schools and organizations which will help children in grades 4 and 5 understand why recycling and diverting waste from the landfill is important and how their behaviour has a direct impact on the environment. The video provides a visual guide on what happens to the various items they place at the curb or deliver to transfer stations and leaf and yard depots. It focuses on environmentally friendly waste management practices including proper sorting of recyclable household materials and the three R’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Students learn that waste is something every single one of us CAN do something about. Our individual actions can make a difference in both our community and the environment.
