Waste Reduction

Waste reduction programs focus on reducing consumption of non-renewable products, disposing of classroom and lunch materials appropriately, and understanding how the materials we use affect our planet. Successful applicants will determine the right mix of recycling and composting for their school, as well as whether the balance of the program should be mainly in classrooms or in lunchrooms.
