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 many other resources.
Plus, we recognize schools that significantly reduce waste with awards of up to $1,500!
If you have questions or would like help with any of the resources, please contact:

The diversion rate at the schools within the RecycleSmart service area territory has steadily increased since we have focused on improving recycling and composting. “Diversion” includes waste prevention, recycling and composting. This chart shows how we have successfully “diverted” over 65% of materials from going to landfills.
