Zero-waste education goes digital

The Zero Waste team, a subcommittee formed through the City of Phoenix, has long worked to provide recycling and waste diversion education to schools, businesses, and neighborhoods. Their efforts are aimed at transforming Phoenix communities for the better. And through Reimagine Phoenix—an initiative focused on increasing city waste diversion to 40% by the end of this year—team members are more dedicated to their mission of making Phoenix a zero-waste city than ever before.

While in-person connection opportunities are limited due to COVID-19, the Zero Waste team has adapted its strategy through a new, digital tool called Recycle+. The virtual program offers educational materials for kids of all ages, from kindergarten to high school. Between coloring books, scavenger hunts, and even a waste-sorting game, team members are doing their part to ensure communities remain engaged—and entertaining—in the process.

Since March 1, the page has had 3,841 material searches on their waste wizard, and 1,764 game plays on the recycle sorting game.
