Did you know that Americans use about 392 cans per person per year? By recycling just one of those aluminum cans, you could save enough electricity to run a TV for three hours.
These are just some of the tips you can learn about the importance of recycling through Clearwater Solid Waste’s free educational outreach program. Through an age-appropriate presentation, solid waste professionals will come to your school or organization to cover the basics of recycling:
- What is recycling?
- Why should we recycle?
- What items can be recycled?
- What happens to items after they’re recycled?
School presentations are offered for kindergarten through 12th grade. Presentations and recycling displays are also available for businesses, civic organizations, community events and fairs. After-hours presentations may be arranged and are subject to staff availability. Presentations for Earth Day (April 22) and Pinellas Recycles Day (Nov. 15) should be made well in advance. Call (727) 562-4933 to request a presentation.
