Is your classroom ready to go green? Recycling in the classroom is an important way to teach students to care for our Earth. Starting a recycling routine in your classroom can be a daunting task, as communities have varying guidelines for what can be recycled, and children sometimes struggle to learn to sort recyclables properly. These labels will help simplify the process for you! Each label shows clear, realistic examples of each type of recyclable/waste item, and has its own vivid color to make distinctions even easier. Mix and match the labels that best suit the needs of your classroom. See the thumbnails for photos of examples!

Included in this download:

  • Recycling label- Aluminum
  • Recycling label- Glass
  • Recycling label- Markers (use with Crayola's ColorCycle program)
  • Recycling label- Paper
  • Recycling label- Plastic

  • Compost label

Each label is included both as an individual jpeg image, and as part of a PDF, which will print four to a page. There are 10 unIque images, 11 options total (2 options for garbage label).

This product is intended for personal/single classroom use only.

Thank you!!
