This means schools.  All one has to do is sign up online at http://www.call2recycle.org.  Schools can participate in the Call2Recycle┬« program without being advertised as a public drop-off location if they do not want to listed as such.  Since everything is free of charge, the MCMUA is encouraging every school, business and/or public agency to request a drop-off box for its office or work site.
