Classroom Workshops and Presentations

Just so you don't forget, these are some of the programs and services RecycleMore has been able to offer at NO CHARGE to our local schools:

RecycleMore offers quality programs FREE to public and private schools (K thru 12) within the West Contra Costa Unified School District service area. In 2016-2017 we had another very successful season in providing West County schools a number of activities that educate students on the 4 R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot!  Providing these activities is an significant portion of RecycleMore's mission as society will depend on the the younger generations to continue to be the voice and enthusiastic supporters in protecting our environment.
