West School Goes Green

Lunchroom Composting

Lunchroom Composting

The Green Team is excited that West School has been chosen to pilot a new composting program for the district.  Lunchroom food scraps will be picked up weekly by Collective Resource, inc.  and will become ​a nutrient-rich soil amendment. West School students have been composting for many years using Green Cone Digesters and a traditional compost bin. The addition of a service will greatly increase the volume of compost, especially in the winter. In addition to all food products, we will now be able to add napkins, compostable utensils, and other paper products. Go Green!
