Environmental Discovery Center

The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District’s (SEIRD) staff often makes recycling presentations to classrooms, civic clubs and organizations, or governmental meetings to advocate environmental stewardship to the public. This is a free service, and is available throughout their seven-county district comprised of Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley, Scott, and Switzerland Counties.  

SEIRD is pleased to offer their Environmental Discovery Center (EDC) to district schools, families, churches and clubs to learn more about recycling and how it impacts our environment. The 900-square-foot building offers learning activities in several venues, including educational displays, games, activities, and crafts from recyclables.


We stand ready to assist your school, organization, or municipality to learn about the benefits of conscientious recycling and solid waste management. Tours of our EDC and our Jefferson County Recycle Center are available at no charge, by appointment. Contact Gary Marlin at gary@seird.org or at 812-574-4080 to schedule your program or tour today.
