Preventing Waste for Schools

StopWaste helps students, teachers and school district staff across Alameda County become leaders in preventing waste in schools.

Reducing waste before recycling saves resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions and energy use. But just as importantly, it saves time and money!  We offer waste reduction services to help schools and school districts in Alameda County cut costs and operate more efficiently.

Check out the waste prevention links above, including the Locker Leftover Guide, Schoolyards & Gardens best practices and case studies, and Operations & Maintenance resources.

Looking for information about recycling? Head over to our Recycling for Schools section where you will find resources to help keep reusable, recyclable and compostable items out of landfills. We also offer resources to help students learn the 4Rs—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot (compost, that is).

If you don’t find what you’re looking for here, please email schools@stopwaste.org or call (510) 891-6500.
