Marin Sanitary School Programs

We love working with kids and believe that no child is too young to start learning environmental stewardship. We also know that money is tight at schools everywhere and we want to help you conserve your resources!

Our comprehensive 4R Planet Educational Program provides educational lessons, assemblies, assessments and recommendations to help you develop and implement a comprehensive Waste Management plan at your school.

We also encourage schools to visit us for a facility tour. The kids love the hustle-and-bustle of our working facility, not to mention the “ick-factor” of the materials we process. And through all that fun, they learn about sustainability through reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting garbage, conserving our resources, and making better purchasing choices.

Why is Waste Management Important For Your School?

  • It benefits the earth — less waste, less material sent to the landfill, and conservation of resources.
  • It benefits the kids — learning environmental stewardship and invaluable leadership skills.
  • It benefits the school — saving money, better utilization of resources, and it can even be source of revenue!
