The time has come it’s time to roll up our sleeves and dig in to the trash to see what we can find. Waste audit time. We wanted to do a waste audit to get an idea of our major contamination issues so that we could target that specific item rather than just guessing. It also gave us some physical real world numbers that we can use to help our case when we are pushing for school wide policy and more relatable data to make people care more. This was a lot of work and took a lot of resources to conduct, it was messy and took a lot of planning but it was definitely worth it. So the results were our organic contamination rate. It was high so that is going to be our major focus in the coming months.
