Summer Recycling Presentations

Never a dull moment in the Pasco County Schools Recycling Department. During the school year we have contests and the surplus store; but what do we do in the summer when schools out? We visit with our PLACE programs and promote recycling at home and at school.

Do you know that its free to recycle from home if you have curbside trash pickup? Since only 30% of the people in Pasco County that can recycle do, I'm guessing you might not have known that. 

Did you know that last school year Pasco County Schools saved almost 30,000 trees by recycling our used paper? Or that Earth Patrol is available in ALL schools from Elementary to High School?  Our PLACE program students can tell you all about it and more!

Every PLACE program, STARR Academy and Delta Academy has the chance to have the Pasco County Recycling Coordinator (Salinda Strandberg) and a representative from the Pasco County Recycling Transfer Station (Rachelle Dobbs) come out to their site for an hour of talking about the importance of recycling and what we can do everyday to make a difference.

Summer isn't the only time these presentations are available. If you are interested in having us come to your class or school at the start of a recycling unit or anytime during the year, just contact the Recycling Department at 813-794-2380.

It's informative and fun!
