The Lucas County Solid Waste Management District provides outreach and education programs. The District contracts with Keep Toledo / Lucas County Beautiful, Inc. (KT/LCB) to provide schools in Lucas County with comprehensive education and awareness activities for students as well as educators.
The school programs are designed for students from K-12, as well as pre-school, youth groups, and scout troops. Some hands-on instructional activities include making recycled paper jewelry and an edible landfill.

During these entertaining and informative workshops, information is presented about the latest solid waste management, recycling, litter prevention and environmental issues. Attending educators are given substantial curricula for classroom use.
A lending library is also available with a wide variety of environmental education books, videos, environmental education activities and informational brochures.
