For West Virginia Teachers

Win Cash to Purchase Instructional Materials for Your Classroom!!!

As an educational outreach, the coalition has developed lessons for West Virginia teachers so they and their students may recognize materials which may be recycled, realize decomposition eventually restores some materials back to the soil, develop an understanding of the solid waste management practices related to recycling, incineration, sanitary landfills and hazardous waste disposal, and consider the role engineers play in solid waste management.
