The Recycling Rewards program is offered to all Jackson County schools, K-12, public and private, to promote school recycling. Jackson County Health Department provides county schools with recycling and recycling education. The program promotes sustainable concepts through hands-on learning activities. This program is funded by the Jackson County Board from landfill tipping fees.

The goal of the Recycling Rewards program is to educate students and school staff and to engage them in promoting positive recycling behavior. Participating in the recommended activities and adopting them as common practice will move schools towards creating zero waste, thus increasing environmental stewardship and saving energy and non-renewable resources.
