In The Community

Student Programs

We at Athens Services value our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen, caring employer and conscientious neighbor.  It is important for us to sustain a relationship with the communities in which our employees, clients and customers reside. Through our participation in charitable causes, we have gained valuable insight into the needs and concerns of the communities we service.

Athens provides recycling and waste management services to over 300 local schools and other charitable organizations on a daily basis. As one of the largest recyclers in Southern California, Athens is committed to helping your school meet their disposal needs and goals.  Athens school presentations educate students on Reducing, Reusing and Recycling discards. Classroom presentations or tours of Athens' Material Facility are available upon request. Be sure to check out our “Earth Commitment” section for helpful resources and tips on creating a more sustainable future.
