All Dublin schools are actively recycling and many schools have comprehensive programs targeting paper, bottles and cans, cardboard and even food scraps and other organics from their lunch areas. Many Dublin schools have been able to significantly reduce the amount of waste being disposed of in local landfills, saving money and reducing their environmental footprint in the process

How AVI Can Help Your School: AVI can support your school's recycling/environmental efforts in a number of ways, including free technical assistance, and helping your school obtain indoor and outdoor recycling containers for your campus (see below for a list of AVI services available to schools). If your school is interested in starting, expanding or improving your recycling program, we're here to help.

Targeted materials for recycling at schools:

School Food Waste/Organics Recycling Program

Did you know that in many Dublin schools, lunch waste represents the single largest source of trash (by volume) generated on campus? And did you know that the majority of lunch area discards can easily be composted instead of being disposed of in local landfills? Many Dublin schools are already taking advantage of AVI's free school food waste/organics program, which includes free collection service, free containers, free program setup and free ongoing technical support. They're separating their food scraps, food trays and food soiled paper, and are reducing lunch area waste by 60-70% or more as a result.

For more information about how your school can benefit from this exciting program, or to find out how you can get involved, call AVI at 925-479-9545.
