Your School Could Win Cash Prizes!

To help reduce waste, comply with state and local laws, and increase recycling awareness at our schools, the District is again teaming up with our waste and recycling service provider, Republic Services, to bring you the 2022/23 SDUSD Recycling Challenge.  


There are cash prizes totaling $5,500 for the schools that divert the most waste, have lower overall trash generated per student, and increase and promote sustainability efforts on campus. All schools that receive waste and recycling services through the District contract with Republic Services are automatically registered to compete in the SDUSD Recycling Challenge.


This year's Challenge is once again points-based.  Schools that submit an on-line Recycling Challenge Award Nomination Form that demonstrate their school's efforts to educate and promote recycling, waste diversion, and/or sustainability efforts on campus receive additional points.  The Challenge runs from September 2022 - March 1, 2023.
