While recycling and waste reduction are important at home, we spend a lot of time at school and at work. Whether it’s recycling paper or reusing school supplies to their fullest potential, there are lots of opportunities to reduce waste outside of our homes.
Schools, businesses and individuals are encouraged to use the materials provided to reduce waste no matter where you are!
Make sure students and employees know what to recycle with clear signage! To ensure that recycling is easy and includes consistent messaging throughout the county, we provide printable signage that matches up with with the Otter Tail County Recycling Guide, and includes pictures of acceptable items to eliminate confusion about what goes in the bin. Need signage of a different size or for a specific item? Let us know and we can help you get the signage you need to have a successful recycling program.
Encourage recycling by educating staff and students about the benefits of recycling with school recycling posters. Posters can be printed, or your school can request free copies.

Don’t Trash Your Locker!
Buying shiny new school supplies is fun as students anticipate the beginning of a new school year. But what happens to those supplies at the end of the year? In the haste and excitement of desk and locker cleanouts at the end of the year, many things that could be recycled or reused are simply trashed – leading to large amounts of waste that could be avoided. Reduce waste at the end of the school year and help out local organizations by participating in the Don’t Trash Your Locker! program.
