4th Grade Programs and Resources
StopWaste serves 4th grade classes primarily through field trips to one of two Alameda County transfer station facilities. Classrooms participating in the field trip program follow up at school by taking action and creating a project that educates their community at home and at school. Curriculum and resources are also available for 4th grade classrooms.
Transfer Station Field Trips - Virtual and In-Person
This 2022-2023 school year, StopWaste is resuming in-person field trips to the Davis Street Transfer Station and the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station! We are also continuing our virtual field trip program that brings the transfer station to your classroom! This Field Trip Program will ask your students to transform into garbologists who make observations, ask questions, and take action to reduce waste.
