Did you know that recycling is currently NOT required in schools in the USA nationwide? This means that the responsibility falls into our hands. AFN has therefore developed a guide that provides students with the tools and support to lead the effort to promote recycling in their own schools. With the information included this packet, you will have the building blocks you need to start your own program.
