Second semester has just begun and it is already going to be a busy one. We have received our green bins to place in classrooms as well as some signs to go with them. We hope to have these out by the end of this week in order to create a habit of using them early in the semester. We have also been given the news that because of the budget for our school, unfortunately only one green bin can be purchased for now to mount in the hallway. After much discussion, we have decided to place in in the middle of the main hallway as a central area, also because everyone eats in the main hall mostly anyway. During the pilot of the green bins we are putting in, Sally from the Solid Waste Management Department has asked us to monitor the bins for contamination and come up with a compilation off data. This will include photos, notes, and surveys to ensure proper use of the compost bins throughout the week . If all goes well, she wants to try getting green bins in other high schools as well! Although our main bins have been limited, it will not hold us back, we are going to continue to move forward with our plans and we look forward to seeing how this goes.
