Summer Webinar Series

Though our spring Conference was cancelled, we were able to "pivot" our Conference workshops into a Summer Webinar Series. There are still a few live webinars remaining and all of our webinars have been recorded and are available for purchase. Professional development credits are available where applicable. A limited number of scholarships may still be available. Contact TheClub@nrrarecycles.org.
Club News

SHIP Lessons - In response to the pandemic last spring, The School Recycling Club created nine free virtual SHIP lessons (Supporting Home Instruction Program). They were designed to serve as supplemental material for teachers and parents teaching from home. They offer lessons from our curricula, along with videos and crafts related to the lessons and recycling subjects. We invite you to use these free lessons to keep recycling alive for your students. You can find all nine lessons and much more on our new Resources page.

Virtual Workshops - Until schools reopen for visitors, we're pivoting from in-person to online workshops and technical assistance for the coming school year. Your school must be a School Club Member to qualify for our programming. Here's our Menu of Programs & Curricula.

School Recycling Club Membership - All NH schools receive free membership thanks to the generosity of NH the Beautiful. Also, if your town or waste management district is a member of NRRA, your school automatically qualifies for free membership in The Club. Learn How to Join or check your membership status at TheClub@NRRARecycles.org.
Contests/Fundraisers

Many schools start their fundraising efforts in the fall. If you are tired of chocolate bars and magazines, we have some great sites that promote environmentally-responsible products. You can check them out on our Contests, Fundraisers & Special Programs page!
