Some of the services the Alliance provides to support schools:
Coordination of hazardous waste disposal with scheduled hazardous waste collection events we host and guidance for 3rd party disposal sources. School chemistry labs and janitorial supply rooms are two areas where we can help.
Technical assistance to assess and reduce food waste in the cafeterias and reduce reliance on disposable food service ware (FSW). We also provide illustrated bin signs for better waste sorting to reduce contamination.
Complimentary curriculum activities in environmental education from single classroom presentations to hosting school-wide recycling and waste assessment activities. An example is a Trash On the Lawn Day (TOLD) a fun and engaging way to learn what is in the school’s trash - a waste assessment of how everyone is sorting trash, recycling, and composting.
