Recycle City was designed with the classroom in mind. All of the games and locations have been designed to make it easy for a teacher to set different goals that can match up with lessons being taught in class. You can also check out "Things to Do in Recycle City" for some more ideas. The new Recycle City Challenge will test player’s knowledge of how everyday decisions can cut waste and energy use – at home, school, and throughout the community. In the Dumptown Game, player’s become the city manager in charge of addressing litter and pollution. Players start new community programs and activities and track their impact on reduced, recycled, and reused waste streams, and costs and benefits.
Recycle City is an interactive way for students to learn how everyone can recycle, reduce, and reuse waste by doing simple things. Educators can create their own scavenger hunts and activities and set goals that can be paired with lessons being taught in the classroom. It can be adapted for all ages. Recycle City can be used online, downloaded for offline use, and has a printable version, so it can be used in any setting.
