    Recycling Background
    Elementary School - Grades 4-6
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Determine if paper towel use could be reduced by using a simple sticker on a paper towel dispenser that reminds people that paper towels come from trees. [E]
    Show that biodegradable plastic breaks down faster than regular plastic. [P] [P]
    How much space trash really occupies? [E]
    Research practices and habits that might reduce the amount of wastes created at school [P]
    Densities of Various Solutions vs. Plastic Separation [P]
    Do lunch packing materials decompose faster if they are buried in the ground or on top of the ground, and what materials decompose quicker? [P]
    Construct biodegradable cups to replace Styrofoam cups. [P]
    Prove that burning trash is a good alternative to landfills. [P]

    Biodegradation of a Sugarcane-based Disposable Plate and a Tree-based Disposable Plate in a Landfill [E]
    Which type of paper decomposes the fastest? [P]
    Determine whether it is possible to harness wasted gravitational potential energy and convert it into easily accessed kinetic energy. Application of this principle is a garbage can that can bring itself out to the curb when full and back to the house when empty. [E]
    Will biodegradable plastic spoons decompose in common environments? [E] [E] [E]
    Study auto body plastic filler (ABPF) and see if it degrades, and how it may affect the environment, landfills, water system, soil and the degradation of other materials. [P]
