The purpose of education is not knowledge but action. Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know. We want to promote recycling to all ages and make them aware of the consequences of not doing so. Programs and Presentations 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 Center (EC) 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 Jefferson County Recycle Center and facilities are available at no charge, by appointment.
One Man's Trash and Trash Talk!
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? Did you know 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.
