WELCOME TO THE
CALIFORNIA K-12 SCHOOLS RECYCLING CHALLENGE!
The California Recycling Challenge is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for K-12 school recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their school communities. Over a one month period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables or have the highest recycling rate.
With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their school communities to reduce and recycle more.
The competition is conducted on a “Per Capita” basis to allow schools/districts of all sizes to participate. The program is intended to include the faculty, staff, students, and custodial staff.

As your school prepares for cold and flu season, please remember that the Contra Costa Public Health is available to answer questions, provide information and support your efforts to protect students and staff from getting ill.
One of the most important ways that you can help is to encourage staff, students and families to get their flu vaccine as soon as possible. Annual flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months and older.
We also hope you will promote frequent hand washing with soap and water at your school, and teach younger children how to do a good job.
Many of you have questions and concerns about Enterovirus-D68 (EV-D68), the respiratory illness affecting children across the country. We do anticipate EV-D68 cases in Contra Costa County, and are working with local hospitals and providers to test people hospitalized with serious respiratory infections. EV-D68 is concerning because it can be serious for certain people, particularly children with asthma or other respiratory conditions.
There are more than 100 types of enteroviruses, and they are very common in children. This enterovirus, EV-D68, is not new – it was first identified in 1962 – and it mostly causes symptoms that are similar to those of a cold or flu, such as cough, sneezing, runny nose, body aches, or fever. Many children infected this year by EV-D68, however, do NOT have a fever.
EV-D68 can spread from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or contaminates a surface with respiratory secretions. It can also spread through contact with stool (poop). Measures we can all take to stay healthy include:
- Avoid touching the face (nose, mouth and eyes) with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Encourage everyone to cover their coughs and sneezes.
- Wash frequently with soap and water. Alcohol-based hand cleaners do not kill enteroviruses.
- Clean often-touched surfaces, such as toys and door handles, especially if someone is sick. Disinfect them with a diluted bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach to 1 gallon water) or another EPA-approved disinfecting product that indicates use for non-enveloped viruses (such as norovirus).
