    IRC Master Recycler, Allyson Mitchell
    The Indiana Recycling Coalition’s Master Recycler Program is an online education platform with a series of learning modules on waste reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, sustainable product design, the circular economy, and a variety of other topics. Each module will utilize a variety of media to dynamically educate participants about each topic in 5-15 minutes, while also engaging them with polls, quiz questions, and interactive features to ensure learning retention and encourage positive behavior change. This free program is intended to be a valuable tool for solid waste management districts, teachers and educators, community groups, and employers seeking to inform and inspire action at the individual level.

    The IRC plans to develop a module focused on SWMDs and their role in Indiana. We look forward to working with the AISWMD and individual SWMDs to develop that module. Being able to share this program at the AISWMD retreat is a great help in getting us engaged to do just that!
