Weaver Lake Elementary recently added compostable containers to its recycling program! Not every container is recyclable, so adults help students sort materials for recycling, trash, and compostable organics.
Ms. Strommen created a helpful video to guide students through the process! https://youtu.be/8zgoMadlE-w
Did you know that nearly 80% of all school waste is recyclable? In addition to food, napkins, and compostable containers, Weaver Lake also collects paper towels from student bathrooms for composting. Hennepin County's School Recycling website has more great information about school recycling and composting! http://www.hennepin.us/business/recycling-hazardous-waste/school-recycling
