This year our group focused and wasting less and reusing more.  Our school was able to get sorting bins and placed six sets around the school.  We educated out students and staff about the importance of sending less waste to the landfills and wasting fewer of our natural resources.  At first, it was a huge adjustment for our staff and students to sort their throw aways.  However, it is becoming the culture of our school now.  We are looking for ways to be able to turn our food waste into feed for local farmers as well.

We also got serious about recycling batteries.  Throwing batteries into the garbage pose an environmental hazard to the local area as well as a potential safety and health hazard.
