The California K-12 Schools Recycling Challenge

The California Recycling Challenge is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for K-12 school recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their school communities.  Over a one month period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, or have the highest recycling rate.

The competition is conducted on a “Per Capita” basis to allow schools/districts of all sizes to participate.  The program is intended to include the faculty, staff, students, and custodial staff.
