As part of the School Recycling Project Grant Program , teachers can request up to $100 of recycled products to use as rewards or to create incentives for students participating in recycling projects. Grant proposal approval is required to receive products. This booklet will enable students to apply the recycling ethic learned in the classroom project to their own home. All teachers may request copies of the books whether or not receiving RTP assistance. Please use instructions in the book for guidance.
