The CWS Community Outreach department is committed to working closely with our communities to educate, entertain and support our customers.
 We are proud of our outreach efforts and initiatives and we have received many awards and recognition both local and internationally. CWS is proud to have participated in dozens of projects over the years.

A few highlights are:

  • City of San Jose “Bring Your Own Bag”
  • Green San Jose (website link)
  • Alameda County “Bring Your Own Bag”
  • Oakland “Bring Your Own Bag”
  • Oakland Recycles
  • Oakland Food Polystyrene restrictions
  • Oakland Multi Family Recycling Initiative

CWS also attends and sponsors several community events each year. At these events we provide additional education and entertainment involving our ecology and recycling importance. Some of our past events are:

  • Oakland Temescal Festival
  • Oakland Rockridge Festival
  • Oakland Childrens Holiday Parade
  • San Jose Christmas in the Park and Parade
  • San Jose and Oakland downtown Earthday celebrations
  • San Jose Pumpkins in the Park
  • Oakland and San Jose National Night Out
  • Alameda County Creek to Bay Cleanup
  • San Jose Great American Litter Pickup

We also provide a rewarding Tour at our State of the Art Recycling Facility in San Jose. We provide age appropriate materials and training for all ages. Our observation room permits even children under 8 the opportunity to view our operation and provide a rewarding experience.

At times groups may not be able to come to our facility but still want to learn about recycling, environmental sustainability or what families and communities can do to better enhance our environment.

CWS team members are available to come to your location to provide a presentation to all ages and group sizes.
