Chapter 12.5 - Schoolsite Source Reduction and Recycling
(a) The Legislature finds as follows:
(1) There are 1,029 school districts and 7,170 schools in California.
(2) Source reduction and recycling programs in the schools will significantly assist cities and counties in meeting the solid waste diversion goals set for 1995 and the year 2000, by Section 41780.
(3) Source reduction and recycling programs in the schools will also educate children on the importance of these activities, and will teach them waste management skills that will last throughout their lives.
(b) The Legislature, therefore, declares that school districts throughout the state should be assisted in establishing and implementing source reduction and recycling programs.
