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 firstname.lastname@example.org or at 812-574-4080 to schedule your program or tour today.

Available quarterly, SEIRD produces
two educational publications that are distributed throughout schools and area
newspapers. “One Man’s Trash…” and Trash
Talk! are guides to Reduce,
Reuse and Recycle. Content includes recycling tips, facts, crafts and features on businesses that are reusing and repurposing recyclable materials. Did you know that a company can make the soles for six pairs of shoes from one car tire? That plastic soft drink bottles are being turned into polyester that becomes fleece blankets and hoodies? SEIRD publications include topics that review subjects such as limiting waste by rethinking purchases, analyzing buying habits and more.
