Youth Programs

REDO shares recycling education with students from all different backgrounds and ages. Invite us to visit your classroom to give a presentation on local waste and recycling initiatives. Interested in taking a tour at a local landfill or recycling center? We can help connect you! Do you want to make an impact but don’t know where to start? We can help you begin your journey. 

High Schools

REDO works with students who want to create, improve and/or promote recycling systems in their schools and communities. We empower these young leaders by providing training, support and educational materials. 

Parents and Teachers: We provide the guidance and resources needed to initiate recycling programs at local schools.

Students: High school students intern as Project Coordinators to initiate or amplify recycling at their high schools. Students gain valuable leadership experience educating their peers, and the community, on how to recycle right. Volunteer hours and projects will vary depending on the type of program they choose to create.

Students from the PCHS Conservation Council meet to discuss the creation of a Recycling Committee.

Scouts

REDO partners with scout troops who want to make an impact to improve recycling and resource use. 

Scouts will:

  • Identify a problem in their community
  • Research solutions
  • Collaborate with other organizations
  • Fundraise
  • Recruit and train volunteers
  • Implement a plan
  • Track results

Businesses

We help businesses recycle right! We can provide general guidance, answer questions, help businesses create internal policies, and provide presentations and trainings to staff on how to recycle right. 

Policy creation: A recycling policy will help your business thrive in its mission to go zero-waste. It ensures that everyone in your organization is on the same page. Sustainability leaders in businesses move up and out of companies, but a policy is there to stay.
