Can ImageRecycling is Simply Elementary

The RISE program is a partnership between Davis Waste Removal, Davis Farm to School, the RCC Group, LLC, an environmental management firm, the City of Davis, and the Davis Joint Unified School District.

The partnership works together to develop an effective recycling program with the ambitious goal to reduce the solid waste stream at the eight elementary sites by 50 percent or more.The partnership places Site RISE Coordinators at each school to work with custodians and help students recycle during breakfast and lunch. The students sort their waste into plastics, cans, glass, and paper before heading to the playground for recess. Students also sort their food waste - fruits and vegetables go into a compost bucket for on-site composting, other food waste into the trash. Those schools participating in the ALL compost project divert all of their food waste for pick up by Davis Waste Removal.
