Waste Reduction

Waste Reduction

Kids are recycling and composting leaders

More than 8,000 Davis students learn about waste reduction and composting each day at school.

DavisRISE (Recycling Is Simply Elementary) is our unique, proven, recycling program that reduces waste at all school sites.

Compost collection at elementary sites diverts all lunch food waste which means even greater waste reduction.
