About the Zero Waste Schools Program

The Zero Waste Schools Program (ZWSP) works with Marin County schools to implement recycling and composting programs in order to comply with mandatory state laws. Zero Waste Marin will provide each school site with zero waste training, 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 Marin Sanitary Service or Redwood Landfill where you can see first-hand how your materials are sorted. This program will help our schools and Marin County residents 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:
