Does your school make efforts to recycle during special events? Do parents and other community members have the opportunity to recycle when they are in your school? Is there anything that you could do to promote recycling and waste diversion when you have special events?
Choose at least one event during the school year and plan to offer event recycling to attendees. You can obtain temporary event recycling containers from the HCSWA for such a purpose. Click here to see the forms form additional information on how to get this equipment. Please submit this form at least 3 weeks in advance to make sure that the delivery of equipment can be scheduled directly to your school. You may also choose to utilize the containers and equipment currently on-site and make container available to attendees during the event. Make sure that you have signs available to tell everyone what should go in the containers.
This is a great opportunity to introduce recycling and composting to parents and guardians! The students have likely told them about what is going on in there school and this is a great chance to have students teach their family how to be good environmental stewards.
