Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful

The Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum (The Discovery), Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB), and Waste Management (WM) collaborated for a “Waste Warriors Week” of educational activities at The Discovery during the week of June 15-21, 2015. Waste reduction and recycling activities were featured from KTMB’s popular Waste Warriors curriculum (made possible by a 2012 Waste Management/KAB Think Green Grant). During “Waste Warriors Week,” The Discovery, KTMB and WM volunteers and staff dedicated more than 240 hours to design and facilitate eight hands-on activities and demonstrations. This project and partnership successfully inspired about 3,000 kids and adults to be creative in the way they reduce their waste and reuse common items they might otherwise throw away or recycle, further encouraging them to practice and share what they learned in the Truckee Meadows community.
