The Department has a number of ongoing, special programs, which include:
Learn the ins and outs of how to reduce waste, recycle, and compost, and then put that learning into use.
Every year the Department awards a $2,500 scholarship to a student that is headed to college in the environmental studies/engineering field. The scholarship also includes a full-time job working with the Environmental Services staff.
We have a variety of videos about recycling that you can watch from your computer.
Each Fall, students throughout the County prepare artwork related to waste reduction and recycling, with certain artwork being chosen for inclusion in our annual Art Calendar.
Do you work with kids? If so, be sure to check out our guide to educational resources in the area.
There are several organizations in and around Marion County that are doing environmentally related projects. Many of these organizations have volunteer and educational opportunities available.
