The recycling game features:

  • 6 waste sorting bins
  • 60 cards with pictures of items that we often have to dispose of + 60 of the same cards that have pictures and descriptions on them
  • general answer key with suggested recycling options for every item

The game consists of 6 waste sorting bins and 60 cards with pictures of items that we often find ourselves disposing of. The aim of the game is to determine whether they can be recycled or not.

Play it as a sorting game. Each player picks up a card and attempts to determine which bin it should be placed in. If the answer is correct, the player scores a point. In the end of the game, the player with the most points wins.

It is important to remember that every municipality has different rules for recycling and a different number of bins. It is a good idea to look into your local rules of recycling and play the game with them in mind. However, if the players come from different locations or no specific rules can be found for your neighbourhood, a general answer key is included. It is based on trends in some communities but may not be universally applicable.
