About the Zero Waste Schools Program

The Zero Waste Schools Program helps Marin County schools implement composting and recycling programs in order to comply with new mandatory state laws. ZWM will provide each school site with indoor and outdoor recycling and compost containers, custodial carts, stickers and signage, and Green Team incentives all at no charge to the school. We can also help you facilitate a tour of the Marin Sanitary Service where you can see first-hand how your materials are sorted. This will help our county save valuable resources and provide lifelong lessons to our students. Zero Waste Schools Program experts will help you take the following steps to become a certified Zero Waste School:
