Classroom Materials and Registration

Talking Trash in Tucson
Talking Trash in Tucson is a four-lesson recycling education curriculum designed for middle school students. The curriculum was developed to provide students with an understanding of how the City of Tucson manages solid waste and the importance and need for recycling in our community. The lessons focus on landfills, the concept of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle," the City of Tucson's Blue Barrel recycling program, recyclable materials, and taking action. A variety of teaching and learning strategies are incorporated in these lessons, including discussion, small group work, research activities, and a poster contest.
