Recycling Options

There are many recycling options available to schools.

Composting at School

You can recycle food scraps from school lunches and other organic material, like leaves and plant clippings, into nutrient-rich compost. Learn how.

Reducing Waste at School

Reducing waste at school instills a culture of responsible waste management in students while helping schools reduce their waste bill. With some creativity and a simple change of habit, schools can watch their dumpster size (and waste bill) shrink.

School Waste Reduction Grant Program

The purpose of the District Priority Grant (formerly the School Waste Reduction Grant) is to assist communities, schools, and non-profit organizations in implementing innovative waste reduction and recycling programs that significantly reduce the grantees' waste stream.

Event Recycling

If you would like to recycle at your school’s next event, the District can help! We have recycling containers available for loan to any organization sponsoring an event in Hamilton County.
