Request a Recycle Right Presentation Today

Confused about recycling? Want to know what goes where? Pizza boxes?  Plastic bags?  We can help! Staff from the City of San José Environmental Services Department is speaking to community groups all over San José about how to Recycle Right.

Our team has been presenting to residents at San José neighborhood association meetings, hosting booths at events and festivals, engaging with youth at local libraries and more. Our Vietnamese and Spanish speaking staff attend many events to connect with our non-English speaking residents. We have enjoyed answering questions and getting to know our San José residents out in the community and we’re looking for more opportunities to share the Recycle Right message. We bring helpful resources in multiple languages, fun games and prizes, and a lot of recycling know-how to our scheduled events.

Recycling is so important as one significant way to reduce waste. When we Recycle Right, we are keeping recyclable materials out of landfill and helping the environment. Also, the market for recyclables is now requiring higher-quality materials. All bottles, jars and other containers need to be empty of any food or liquid to be recycled, otherwise they will go to the landfill, defeating our good intentions. Only clean recyclables can be recycled, sold and made into new products.

Let us help your group to learn how to Recycle Right- request your presentation today! Just fill out the form and we will contact you to make a date and ensure your group has the recycling know-how and resources to make a difference.
