Recycle City was designed with the classroom in mind. All of the games and locations have been designed to make it easy for a teacher to set different goals that can match up with lessons being taught in class. You can also check out "Things to Do in Recycle City" for some more ideas. The new Recycle City Challenge will test player’s knowledge of how everyday decisions can cut waste and energy use – at home, school, and throughout the community.
