"The Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) in Alameda County is proving that environmentally friendly waste-reducing programs can save schools money. Through increased recycling during the past school year, four Berkeley schools were able to decrease their garbage pickups, saving between $2,000 and $3,000 dollars. The district obtained recycling bins through a partnership with Berkeley’s Solid Waste Management Office. These bins are used for recycling aluminum and cardboard lunch trays, glass bottles and aluminum cans, and bins for mixed paper collection placed within each classroom.""
