- Green Waste Pilot Program
In addition to managing rubbish services at the District, OEHS is also tasked with ensuring that as much waste is diverted away from landfills as possible. To help with this goal, Republic Services and OEHS have developed a Green Waste Pilot Program that helps divert green waste from trees and other plants away from land fills. Please review the Green Waste Pilot Program Flyer if your school is interested in taking part in the pilot!
