Studentsfrom kindergarten through 12th grade can make 30 to 90 second films aboutrecycling. The waste authority says it hopes this will be a fun way forchildren to learn about reducing, reusing, and recycling.

                Jamie Tuttle, the Authority School RecyclingCoordinator says, “Whenthey start doing it at such a young age, recycling just becomes a naturalbehavior, it’s just what they do. And as they get older and grow up like I saidit’s just a learned behavior.”
