Recycling coordinators need a variety of skills, so taking a
variety of classes in high school is a good start. Classes in
business, economics, and civics are a good idea to help build an
understanding of the public sector in which most recycling
coordinators work. Knowledge of how local governments and markets
for recycled materials function is something you will need to know
later, and civics and economics courses provide this framework.
English and speech classes are vital to developing good oral and
written communication skills that you use to spread the word about
the importance of recycling. Mathematics and science will prove
useful in setting recycling goals and understanding how recycling
helps the environment.
