RecycleMore’s comprehensive school recycling and classroom education program has successfully served West Contra Costa County schools for more than fifteen years. Our goal is to educate families through their school age children on the importance of waste reduction, recycling and composting.
Through our partnership with Republic Services we are able to offer free recycling center field trips and classroom presentations to public and private schools in West Contra Costa County.
Republic Services can also provide assistance to school’s in establishing and maintaining an on site recycling and cafeteria composting programs by working with administrators, maintenance staff, teachers and students. Field trip and presentation schedules are coordinated at the start of each school year. Elementary schools in the district will be notified for this program. Private schools can contact Republic Services Recycling Coordinator Reagan Chung at (510) 262-7518 to request field trips, presentations or on-site assistance.
