Free Field Trips for all Tulsa public and private schools to Tulsa Recycle and Transfer’s brand new Mr. Murph Recycling Facility. Find out first-hand what happens to your garbage and recyclables… and the part we all can play in protecting Tulsa’s environment.
Why Teach about Recycling?
Recycling is an excellent way to teach students about conservation and the science behind saving our natural resources. At TRT, our goal is to build an awareness of the environment while educating Tulsa families about the positive actions we can take to become involved in our communities!
What Does the Mr. Murph Field Trip include?
- A two-hour program including a visit to TRT’s very own Mr. Murph (Material Recovery Facility).
- An opportunity to learn about the recycling process and where Tulsa’s garbage ends up.
- Hands-on activities at TRT to demonstrate the science behind sorting recyclables.
- Learning about the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and our responsibility for reducing waste in our city.
- Pre-field trip lessons created by TRT.
- Free lunch and bus transportation for all students.
