Nearly 80 percent of school waste is recyclable or compostable.
School recycling programs educate future generations about the importance of waste reduction and recycling. Recycling can also help schools save on disposal costs and taxes associated with solid waste disposal.
Anoka County has grant funding, free container signage and free technical assistance available to help schools start or improve recycling programs. Many schools in Anoka County have expanded or improved their recycling through our school assistance program.
