The Virginia Recycling Association hosted the first in a series of free school recycling workshops on March 10, 2008, in Richmond at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. This was a great opportunity for recycling educators, solid waste managers, school personnel, private schools, colleges and universities and parents to discuss the advantages of school recycling programs and get the technical training on how to start recycling in schools.
