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

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 will visit the school or district facility, help students and staff members assess current practices, and offer guidance on 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 bins. Use the helpful guides listed below, and the recycling resources on the program website.
