Start a Recycling Program in Your School District

Unfortunately, the majority of waste from schools isn’t disposed of properly and should actually be recycled. Paper, food packaging, cleaning supplies and more are often sent to landfills instead of being recycled or composted as they should be. One way to prevent this from happening is to create an effective school recycling program.

To start a recycling program at your school, follow these steps:

  1. Build internal support for a school recycling program.
  2. Meet with your school’s waste collector to gain insight into how waste is currently disposed of.
  3. Perform a waste audit to see where your school can improve.
  4. Develop the school recycling program.
  5. Put the program into practice.
  6. Track results and adjust accordingly if needed.

There are many benefits associated with implementing a school recycling program. Some key ones include:

  • Cleaner facilities
  • Improved sustainability
  • Reduced waste disposal costs
