Litter Prevention & Recycling. Ohio Science Workbook: 1987 Edition
Elfner, Lynn Edward, Ed.
Every active family and business produces solid waste, some of which are the nonhazardous discards of society. Taken as individual substances, our newspapers, food leftovers, containers and wrappings, grass clippings and tree limbs seem harmless enough. But huge volumes of these materials are generated daily. It has been projected that many counties in Ohio may run out of approved landfill space by the end of this century. The purpose of this publication is to promote student research on litter prevention and recycling. This science workbook contains 26 student research project ideas submitted by business, industry, trade associations, and others. Also included are "The Solid Waste Crisis in Ohio"; "Background on Litter Prevention and Recycling"; and "How to Find Information on Litter Prevention and Recycling" (including information on using the library, reference books, journals, indices, abstracts, vertical file and letter writing). "References and Resources" include the addresses of 40 organizations and agencies, and a bibliography of over 200 references. (CW)
