INTRODUCTION AND CREDITS
Here Today, Here Tomorrow - Recycled! is a curriculum supplement sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). It was developed by DEP's Bureau of Recycling and Planning and the Office of Communications and made available for public access in 2005.
Teachers, youth leaders, naturalists, environmental educators, camp counselors and others who work with students in grades 1 - 6 can flexibly use this supplement. It was developed through a review, revision and field testing process utilizing earlier versions of the Here Today, Here Tomorrow curriculum series and other instructional resources that focus on waste disposal, recycling and other related solid waste topics.
Here Today, Here Tomorrow - Recycled! is available online and in a ready-to-print format. It is formatted in easy-to-read sections of information and user-friendly lessons that can be viewed individually then downloaded and printed. This document can be reproduced in sections or in its entirety for use and can be distributed freely as long as DEP staff are consulted regarding permission and the agency is cited with appropriate credits.
