Program Updates
Beginning November 2018:
All DCPS schools will begin SINGLE-STREAM RECYCLING to make recycling easier and to align with DC's residential recycling program. All recycling bins can be used for mixed recyclables which includes paper, plastic, metal, and glass.

Look out for more information coming soon!

Bins that are currently labeled for "paper only" should be re-labeled for "mixed recyclables". Labels available to order below.

Organics Recycling - January 2019!
For the past five years DCPS schools across the city have been recycling their food waste and paper products in their kitchens and cafeterias. These materials are hauled to a facility that turns them into compost. Your school can participate too! School participation subject to DGS approval.
