Please note that due to the subject matter and in order to provide the best educational experience to your students, RethinkWaste is now requiring a 2-part tour for grades 3 – 6. Teachers will be required to select two separate tour time slots when scheduling the tour below. We recommend scheduling your 2 tour visits 1-3 weeks apart. Each tour time slot is for a total of 1 hour.

RethinkWaste Staff will also provide an overview of how to sort your materials properly, a discussion about reuse and reduction tips, and answer questions about hard-to-recycle items.
