4Rs Wastebusters Program
Learn the Four R's—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot!
Did you know that a majority of what schools throw away can be recycled? Paper, plastics—even leftover food—can be kept out of landfills, saving natural resources, energy and space. Did you know that trash services increase every year? Recycling and green waste services cost less than trash, so recycling can save money for your school. We can teach you how to divert your recyclables and reduce your school’s trash bill.
CCCSWA has created waste reduction and recycling programs to help decrease waste in the 47 K-12 public eligible schools and private schools within its service area. CCCSWA and our contractor, Ruth Abbe of HDR will work with administrators, teachers, facility managers, custodians and most importantly, students, to implement successful school recycling programs that help make waste prevention a part of everyday life. We can help you organize and maintain your school recycling and source reduction programs – our services are FREE to all schools.
To schedule activities or for more information, please contact Ruth Abbe, HDR, 415-235-1356 or email at Ruth.Abbe@hdrinc.com
