[GreenYes] school food scrap collection program



Elementary schools participate in the local food scrap
composting program. They accept food scraps from the lunch period and are
finding unacceptable levels of packaging in the collection containers,
things such as plastic wrapping for fresh vegetables, straws, cracker
wrappers, plastic utensils, etc. Training kindergardeners to fifth graders
to separate out these items is a challenge, as is convincing school kitchen
managers and administrators not to provide them in the first place. Can
anyone provide an example of a school food scrap composting program that has

figured out how to deal with/eliminate these and other such
contaminants?
