Republic Services works hand-in-hand with Carson High School on their recycling and composting initiatives. Carson High School was recently awarded the 2015 SEED Award for Environmental Excellence. In this category, Carson High competed against four other nominees, including Los Angeles World Airport (LAX). Carson High School was recognized for their sustainable efforts while being a student-run program. This is the second time the Carson High School program has been recognized. This year, Republic worked with Carson High to build off their program, and we are pleased that other high schools within LAUSD are now interested in duplicating the program at their schools.

Carson High School
Carson High’s Garbology AB 341 program is student-run and provides recycling for all materials including food waste. The students in the program take their precious lunch and after school hours to transport materials and characterize waste. The students also operate an on-campus garden and composting area and have made a video about the program that can be found at: http://youtu.be/Dv9uAUWB1W0

The award was recently recognized in the South Bay newspaper, The Daily Breeze.
