Debris WASTE has several names: These are all different names for waste. We will use "waste" and "trash" today. Waste is anything that is not
needed or used. Waste usually gets
"thrown away". Some trash we shouldn't throw away,
this kind of trash we recycle! But should we throw away ALL of our trash? What kind of trash gets recycled? Here is a list of what we can recycle and what we should throw away MOST trash can be recycled at HOME YES (Recycle) NO (Throw Away) ALL Paper (newspapers, magazines, anything made out of paper) Cardboard (not corrugated) Anything made out of aluminum (most important!) Styrofoam Anything that has food left
behind still on it Reduce- do you remember what that word means from the video? We can also Reduce and Reuse! Reduce means to use less of something. For example, use your own bags when going to the store. Or reduce your use of gas by walking or biking to places. Reuse means to use something you have already used before instead of using a new thing. We can reuse old clothes as rags to clean up spills or to clean.
