Schools: General Information

Everything that can be recycled and composted at home can be recycled and composted at school. RecycleSmart can help increase recycling and composting at your school.

Our team provides free technical assistance to public and private schools, school districts, and custodial and food services staff, including on-site training. We also provide free recycling and organics containers, free signs and stickers, lesson plans, school assemblies and field trips and other resources.

Plus, we recognize schools that significantly reduce waste with awards of up to $1,500!

Calling all Seniors! Our 2017 Waste Reduction Student Scholarship Application is now available! See Programs page for more information.

If you have questions or would like help with any of the resources, please contact:
