The Environmental Classroom

Richland County Solid Waste Management (RCSW) is redesigning their educational program for Fall 2021. The Educational Classroom is implementing a program which will include tours; a mock assembly line; interactive discussions related to natural resources, renewable energy sources, and landfill construction; model building; team building; and more! The day’s activities and discussions will focus on and culminate  in the importance of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.  The day curriculum will coincide with Ohio’s Learning Standards for Science, Grades 3-5.

Teachers will also have the opportunity to bring a program into their classroom. This flexible program focused on recycling is intended to last about an hour. Students can interact directly and in person with RCSW or via zoom or google meet. For more information, click here for the In-Class Kit link.

For the day field trip, RCSW will reimburse the cost of one bus per classroom session (up to $100.00).

The tour begins around 9:30am at the school and will end around 2:00pm (or earlier if stipulated by the teacher). The Educational Rep will meet the students by the school bus.

Don’t forget to bring a lunch and to complete all field trip forms prior to the fieldtrip (link to the forms is currently pending)!

RCSW also works with 4-H Groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Home -School Students, and generally all students in the K-12 Richland County district. Call Kristin at 419-774-5861 for setting up an appointment.

We look forward to seeing you.  Have a great year!
