Managing Waste in Schools

Most schools have been in session for a couple of weeks by now. The homework train has pulled in the station, school supplies might be wearing down already, and lunches are flying out the door. That means waste. Paper, school breakfast, school lunch, paper, pencils, most school supplies, packed lunches… did I mention paper? Recycling bins appear in most schools, but that doesn’t always mean they get used (or used properly). I frequently witness people throwing empty pop bottles or cans into the trash, sitting within inches of the recycling bin. Reducing waste in schools can be accomplished, it just takes a little planning and small habit changes. Consider some of the following tips for schools staff, students, and parents:
