Dumpster Doug helps students discover the important role they play in protecting our natural resources! This interactive and engaging 45-minute online show features all the great tricks, jokes and games included in Dumpster Doug’s In-person Show, plus a Q&A with students. Just in time for Earth Day!

• Zoom preferred, YouTube Live w/o Q&A or pre-recorded also available

• Up to 300 audience members


With his team of Eco-Warriors; Crush it Chris, Garbage Greg, Trashcan Tim, and Recyclin' Mike, Dumpster Doug travels the earth searching for the sources of air, land and water pollution and then shows K-6th graders that small changes make a huge difference when it comes to protecting the earth's natural resources.

When one of these talented performers come to your school, students learn about the 4 R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Read so they too can become Eco-Superstars in the funniest and most magical environmental assembly show your school will ever see!

Watch a dirty soda can become brand new and filled with soda as it is magically recycled in just 30 seconds. Witness trash being turned into useful products instantly as it enters a recycling bin and see a scrap of paper turned into something valuable (a one-hundred dollar bill) instead of being tossed aside.

Tons of audience participation keeps kids on the edge of their seats while the teachers laugh along with all the great lessons. It's the perfect assembly show for Earth Day celebrations or anytime of the year. Support your Green School goals and give your students a resource conservation show they will talk about for months on end with the Dumpster Doug Ecology Show.

  • Dumpster Doug was very engaging and entertaining. He taught the students some practical ways to recycle with some magic mixed in. He had a way of knowing how to allow for excitement by the students and still keep them attentive to the program. I would recommend him to anyone interested in this kind of program.
