Recycling means setting aside materials that can be recycled so they can be collected and then made into new products by manufacturers.

See below for the recycling assistance, supplies, and guides provided by the King County Green Schools Program for school and district participants. Also see Reducing food waste in schools.

Assistance, recycling bins, and signs

For each participant, the Green Schools Program assigns a program representative who helps students and staff assess current practices, and offers guidance on rethinking, reducing, reusing, and recycling. The representative assists each school or district team to make improvements, solve problems, and promote successes.

The program provides recycling stickers and indoor recycling bins. Use the guides listed below and see other recycling resources.
