Printable Bulletin Boards

Use these free, printable bulletin boards to educate your students and co-workers about waste reduction on campus.


Reuse This! This Pinterest inspired board demonstrates how "trash" can be used to create something functional, convenient, and trendy.

How Long Does Trash Last? When we consume goods, we rarely think about how long that trash will last. Will it decompose within 5 months or 5 years? Will it last a decade or a century? This board displays how long a small piece of trash can last in order to motivate students and staff to reduce their waste. 

Which bin does this go in? This is a highly interactive board allows students sort different waste items on the board each week in order to learn what bin each item goes in based on the recycling facilities on campus. 

The "Dirt" on WKU's Compost This Board explains WKU's AMAZING compost program and how students can assist with composting efforts!
