Rethink Single Use Products ♻️ Reduce Disposables ♻️

This week, the CDC released a statement confirming the low risk of surface transmission.

The same day, they recommend restaurants go for disposables cups & plates for reopening.

We ask COVID-19 consultant to CDC Dr. Ben Locwin the REAL RISK of going out to eat — and it’s not the material your fork is made of. #indisposable

Temporary changes to your curbside recycling collection ♻️

In response to COVID-19 precautionary directives in San Benito County, recycling pickup service will see some temporary changes. In an effort to protect Recology employee owners, we ask that customers place all recyclable material inside of the Recology cart in order to receive service. The only materials allowable outside of the cart include batteries (place in clear plastic bag on top of carts) and used motor oil and filters (place next to cart).

We appreciate your patience and flexibility. Please visit our website for more detailed information on this change.

San Benito High School takes advantage of the California Resource Recovery Association K-12 Technical Council mini grants! Read their post below to see how they are using these funds to reduce campus waste...

San Benito High School Environmental Science and Biology teacher Ryan Shorey, who is also an advisor with the campus Environmental Club, recently was one of 18 teachers around the state awarded a $100 mini-grant from the California Resource Recovery Association’s K-12 Technical Council.
Shorey, whose application was selected from among 231 entries, said the funds will be used as “starter money” to help purchase reusable trays for the campus cafeteria -- replacing the use of paper plates for food distribution.
“While the reusable trays are one aspect of our overall goal, food waste reduction is another part of the larger plan,” he said. “The reusable trays simply play into that.”
Earlier in 2019, with encouragement from the Environmental Club, the San Benito High School Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to end the use of styrofoam foodware on campus.
The cafeteria and all campus food service operations now use eco-friendly paper goods for all food and beverages served to students. Those heavyweight paper goods are both renewable and compostable.
