Though classroom teaching has mostly been virtual this past year, Homewood Disposal did not slow down on implementing recycling education. The company distributed Recycling Education Toolkits to the communities it serves so students can continue learning how to make their environment healthy. 

Homewood Disposal has operated since 1956 following four core values of service, stewardship, community and family. One of its signature programs is Planet Protectors, which teaches kids how to recycle and save the environment.  . . .
