The DCPS Recycles! program is standard practice throughout the building at all times. Anyone using the building is expected to participate in the program, including summer programming, community events, and other events during off-school hours.
Having an event in a DCPS building? Follow our step-by-step How-To Guide for Recycling at Events in DCPS Buildings.
Collect waste data at your event and share it with the DCPS Recycles! team. After managing your event’s waste, share your data with DCPS Recycles! so that we can celebrate and learn from your success. Complete the DCPS Recycles! Waste Datasheet with the estimated volume (in gallons) and/or weight of the different waste streams from your event.
