Classroom Waste Assessment

June 5 2020

 We conducted a waste audit of our personal use of plastic as well as noticing amounts and types of waste found around the school.  

Summary

We looked at the contents of the garbage can and recycling can in our classrooms and documented it. 

In addition, students noticed "hot spots" of litter around the school and in particular places on the playground.
