Here's how we're going to do it
Is this stuff "Trash"?
Set up Sorting Bins in the cafeteria
White Bucket = Liquids
Grey Barrel = Trash
No Left-over Food in Trash
Green Bucket for Food Scraps
Recipe for Compost
Compost = Nature's way to recycle
If something was once alive, it will decompose
or rot. If it rots, it can be composted.
Composting keeps food waste out of land fills and
Cafeteria "Trash" isn't 100% Trash
the dumpster than any other room in the school
25% of Cafeteria Trash = Left-over Food
and Left-over Food can be composted
50% of Cafeteria Trash
Only 25% of Cafeteria "Trash"
is really Trash
Paper and cardboard
Numbered plastic containers

plastic bags or wrap
Goals for the Future:
Reduce Reuse Recycle Rot
1) All students and teachers sort cafeteria trash regularly.
Volunteer Monitors at Sorting Stations to answer questions.
Reduce number of trash bags leaving the cafeteria by 80%.
2) ONLY Left-over Food in Green Bucket.
Replace Styrofoam products (trays, bowls, cups or plates) with a reusable or recyclable alternative.
Replace individual mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and salad dressing packets with pump bottles.
Replace plastic water bottles with reusable water bottles.
Look for opportunities to recycle and compost - at home, in your town and at special events, like concerts and festivals.
