To help schools maximize their waste reduction and give students a chance to create life-long recycling habits, Denver Recycles provides these free resources to all Denver Public Schools. 

Classroom Recycle Bins

Free 18-gallon, purple recycle bins make collecting recyclables in the classroom and offices easy.  Order your bins and schedule a delivery through Denver Recycles. 



Classroom Recycle Station Posters

Create recycle stations in your classrooms by placing a recycle bin immediately next to a trash can and displaying our Classroom Recycle Station poster above them.  Contact Denver Recycles to order your posters.  


School Assemblies

Complimentary school assembly presentations are a great opportunity to review the importance of waste reduction and ensure all students and staff are motivated to recycle properly. Contact Denver Recycles to schedule your assembly.
