Supplies, Liners, Signs & Labels

DC Department of General Services (DGS) provides recycling and trash supplies to DC Public Schools at no cost to schools.

Supply Orders

Supply orders are placed two times per year—once in the fall to arrive in January and once in the spring to arrive in August. Complete the Supply Pre-Order Form. After you complete the pre-order form, you will receive a supply order form designed to meet your school’s specific supply needs. 

Signs and Labels

Signs and labels are available by request year-round. Download and print signs you need or request them by mail.  Email [email protected] to request signs and labels. View PDF’s here: DCPS Recycles! Signs and Labels

Post the Classroom Recycling Acceptable Items (Lista de Materiales Que Son Aceptados en el Salon) list in classrooms. 

Bags & Liners

DGS provides compostable bags to schools participating in the organics recycling program. Schools are responsible for purchasing their own bag liners for trash and recycling. Review the Guidelines on Liner Use to make sure you are using the correct bags and liners.
