I started a recycling "center" in my own classroom to try to alleviate the recycling issue at our school. Basically, I bought a HUGE zip lock bag and wrote "RECYCLING" on it. We put our recycled items in the bag each day and at the end of the day a student takes it home, dumps it with their home recycling, and then brings the bag back. The next day I give the kids an "Awesome ECOkid Award." The students LOVE it, but we need something school wide.
