Recycling Presentations

Did you know that Americans use about 392 cans per person per year? Did you know that by recycling just one of those aluminum cans you could save enough electricity to run a TV for three hours?

The City of Clearwater’s Solid Waste Recycling Division services more than 56,000 homes, multi-family residences and businesses in Clearwater and Belleair.

These are just some of the tips you can learn about the importance of recycling through the City of Clearwater Solid Waste’s FREE educational outreach program.

Through an age-appropriate presentation, we will come to your school or organization to cover the basics of recycling, including: What is recycling? Why should we recycle? What items can be recycled? What happens to items after they’re recycled? School presentations are offered for Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Presentations and recycling displays are also available for businesses, civic organizations, community events and fairs. After-hours presentations may be arranged and are subject to staff availability.

Groups may want to schedule presentations well in advance for these popular events:

  • Earth Day - April 22
  • Pinellas Recycles Day - November 15

If you would like to get involved in this worthwhile educational opportunity, please call 727-562-4933.
