Test Your Recycling Knowledge with our NEW Waste Sorting Game

The ’RePlay Game’  is a waste sorting game that allows the player to drag items into the appropriate location for recycling or disposal.  There are a total of five different sorting locations: a paper recycling bin, a containers recycling bin, a trash can, a yard waste depot and a special programs building for the harder to recycle items such as batteries and clothes. 

Once you finish a level, choose a reward to create your own unique park. If you finish all five levels, print out a certificate or replay the game to learn about other materials! Test your knowledge now.
