CRRA Trash Museum

The Trash Museum offers award-winning sustainability programs! Educators will guide your group through an interactive exploration of exhibits on all aspects of waste management. Groups will view the working recycling center and do a topic-specific activity. They can become Trash Detectives, or play a classic game of Bingo with a trash-related twist. Program options may align with school curricula and state science frameworks. During off-site presentations, groups can play a game to determine what belongs in the recycling bin, locate recycling codes, or match recyclables to their resources.
