Attention Teachers!

Would you like to teach your students about waste reduction?

If you teach children ages 4-6, a Garden City Sanitation representative would love to come to your classroom to do a book-reading and short activity. The 25 minute reading and activity teaches the kids about the importance and ease of reducing waste, recycling and composting.

For older students, we can lead discussions on the 4Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle, rot/compost), current environmental legislation, jobs in the waste collection industry, and more. If you’re interested, please contact our office.
