significantly assist cities and counties in meeting the solid waste
diversion goals set for 1995 and the year 2000, by Section 41780.
   (3) Source reduction and recycling programs in the schools will
also educate children on the importance of these activities, and will

lives.
   (b) The Legislature, therefore, declares that school districts
throughout the state should be assisted in establishing and
implementing source reduction and recycling programs.

for their reusable or recyclable materials.
   (h) Disseminating information to school districts on office

feasible, be designed to complement and further the educational goals
