Compost Club Diverts School Organics!

April 9 2020

Students collect organics each day from around the school.

Summary

The Compost Club helps collect organics from around the whole school and bring out to the green bins provided to us by SSF Scavenger!

We have generated much less waste by removing compostables from the landfill containers. We have compost bins from SSF Scavengers and we fill five of the big bins each week with all of our organics.  The Planeteers Club, Compost Club and WeCyclers clubs are a success and will continue to help keep our school green in the future years! We diverted 10,880 gallons of organics from being landfilled!

We didn't get to celebrate because we are sheltering in place.

Students got an intrinsic reward by feeling good about what they did to help the planet.  I guess that is good enough! They also go school service points and will be celebrated at Awards Night if school reopens.  They were celebrated at our school's first ever eco-assembly back in November.
