RE: [GreenYes] School recycling and indoor composting
Title: RE: [GreenYes] School recycling and indoor composting

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (Board) has some useful information on districtwide waste reduction programs, specifically model policies, that may help at http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/schools/WasteReduce/Admin/.  You can access this and much more information at the Board's schools home page at http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/Schools/.  I hope that helps.

Subject: [GreenYes] School recycling and indoor composting


Andrew Weidman posted the following:

"Does anyone have or know of a teacher or a school that has a copy of a
recycling plan?  Disgracefully, My school does not have one currently - or
at least one that is in practice."

California has many schools doing extensive recycling in schools and
classrooms. We published a book by one of California's outstanding
teachers describing their comprehensive, integrated program for
recycling many materials and vermicomposting their cafeteria wastes.
It is "The Worm Cafe: Mid-scale vermicomposting of lunchroom wastes"
by Binet Payne available at:
http://www.wormwoman.com/acatalog/Wormwoman_catalog_The_Worm_Cafe_4.html

It has information about performing a waste audit, biology review,
environmental needs, worksheets and forms, communication materials,
bin assembly, harvest planning, diagrams, discussions, charts,
checklists, and much more.

and. . .  "does anyone do indoor composting?" Indoor composting is
frequently done by people with worm bins. More information about that
is in my book, "Worms Eat My Garbage," available at:
http://www.wormwoman.com/acatalog/Wormwoman_catalog_Worms_Eat_My_Garbage_3.html

I am now putting out a free monthly electronic newsletter, the
