OC Waste & Recycling’s Back-to-School Guide
Summer is almost over, and school is right around the corner. In honor of National Back-to-School Month, we have put together a waste reduction back-to-school guide for you and your family. We know that you work hard to ensure your children have a great and productive year. When preparing your children for school this year, you can help them be good environmental stewards at the same time. Make sure to reuse and recycle as much as you can. Every little bit makes a difference in preserving our beautiful county and mother earth.
