School and University Recycling Resources

CVWMA  offers residential recycling programs only within its 13 member jurisdictions.
The CVWMA does not provide recycling service to schools and universities, however, we know how important it is to have recycling available outside the home so we have put together some information to help you get a recycling program started anywhere.
