Recycling and Waste

Look in the dumpster behind a typical school, and you will likely see a tremendous amount of material that must be removed from campus and placed somewhere else in the community. Some of it may be recyclable, some of it may end up in a landfill, and some of it may not have been needed in the first place. Most schools/school districts pay a considerable amount of money to have unwanted material hauled away from campus, so when schools reduce the amount of waste they generate, they can save money that can be used on educational uses vs. utility costs. Communities also benefit, because reducing school waste can increase the lifespan of local landfills and avoid the taxpayer burden of building new ones. The Go Green Initiative has been helping schools reduce waste and increase recycling since 2002, and we can help your school, too!
