NextStep Recycling:

Community Outreach

Our efforts include educational speaking engagements and seminars in which we talk to students from Kindergarten through Graduate School about the importance of lowering electronic waste.

By informing our community about how they can recycle items that would otherwise be highly harmful to our environment, we hope to encourage individuals to change their behavior and way of thinking. We hope to keep our community safe from waste to meet our priority of empowering people to protect their planet. We also participate in community events on national holidays such as Earth Day, ReUse Day, and America Recycles Day.

Please contact us to schedule one of our staff to speak to your group or attend an event.
