Community: A feeling of fellowship with others
GreenWaste of Palo Alto thoroughly enjoys participating in local community events, from City fairs and parades, to annual races and targeted educational workshops. Being involved with City festivities affords us the opportunity to learn more about the community we serve while providing education on waste reduction, recycling, and composting.

GreenWaste has participated in Repair Café since its inception in 2012. In 2016, GreenWaste of Palo Alto debuted a new outreach trailer dedicated to this program. The primary purpose of this trailer is to aid the Repair Café in storage and transportation of tools and materials between their quarterly events. The trailer was beautifully designed and painted by dedicated Gunn High School students.

CREEK AND COASTAL CLEANUPS

Waste haulers like GreenWaste hold a vital role in preventing ocean plastic pollution by ensuring loads are properly covered, and by using their position to educate the communities they serve.
