Dakota County hosts an annual free school recycling workshop designed to assist all schools in improving their waste reduction, recycling, and organics programs. Administrators, building and grounds personnel, kitchen staff, teachers, and Green Team students are encouraged to attend for industry updates and information, creative solutions and free resources. New panelists and topics are covered each year.
More than half of the public school districts in Dakota County participated in the 2017 workshop as well as several private schools.
Call 952-891-7557 and ask for the school recycling program coordinator to be notified of future workshops.
