Pinellas County Solid Waste promotes school recycling to educate children about recycling and reducing the amount of trash we throw away.
- Pinellas County School Board:
Pinellas County public schools and offices may contact their Department of Operations, Safety and Security at (727) 547-7238 to learn about new recycling programs and how to improve current programs.
- Private Schools and Colleges:
Private schools and colleges should contact the Cutting Waste at Work program. Pinellas County staff will provide an on-site waste assessment and custom recommendations to your school. Contact us at (727) 464-7500 or email.
Keep Pinellas Beautiful offers school recycling programs to encourage students to reduce, reuse and recycle. Programs are for all K-12 students in Pinellas County schools. Programs include contests and community service activities. Learn more at Keep Pinellas Beautiful.
- Resources for teachers:
Download activities, coloring and games related to recycling and conservation at Activity Books.
- School Events:
Extra recyclable collection bins may be requested for smaller school events. For larger sports events or a carnival, the Recyclin' Roadie can visit your school. The Roadie is a brightly painted mobile recycling truck that can be temporarily parked on site and used to collect recyclables. Pinellas County staff would also like to participate in your next school event to teach attendees how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Email Pinellas County Solid Waste to include recycling at your next school event.
