At Alameda Community Learning Center, for sale Facilitator Adriana Lombard’s seventh and eighth grade science classes have been working hard to educate the ACLC Community about the 4Rs -Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot.

During a series of four Wednesday classes, students learned how to reduce waste at home and in school, then translated their learning into a brochure to send home to the ACLC Community.

Each class focused on a different ‘R’, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot, by researching online sources, using Stop Waste resources, and creating artwork for each of their sections. While doing research, the students learned how to determine if a website could be used as a legitimate reference to find resources on composting and recycling.

What can you find in each section?

  • Reduce: Ways you can reduce at home and what it means to be Zero Waste.
  • Reuse: Locations in the City of Alameda and Oakland where residents can drop off items to be repurposed.
  • Recycle: Where to bring unwanted household items to be recycled and fun facts.
  • Rot: What goes in the Green Bin at home, and the difference between ‘Home Composting’ and ‘Using the Green Bin at Home.’
