Waste Reduction Education

Waste reduction education presentations (commonly referred to as the "Power of R") are offered free of charge, to classrooms of all ages or community groups in both the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and the Strathcona Regional District (SRD). The ‘Power of R' is an educational program that focuses on waste reduction (rethink, refuse, reuse, reduce and recycle). Waste reduction educators are experienced at tailoring their presentations to the age and knowledge level of participants.

“The Power of R” includes a wide variety of classroom workshops that are designed to be stand-alone or in a series that work in conjunction over a school year or from year-to-year. The information and delivery formats of the program are continually re-worked to engage different learning styles and stay current with emerging issues.

Sessions can be booked at any time of year and can be linked into all subject areas and seasonal topics such as greening your holiday season or starting a ‘waste-free' year. Teachers will appreciate the series, which is curriculum-linked and developed by knowledgeable educators who create memorable interactive experiences for their students.
