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  You can access this and much more information at the Board's schools home page at  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:

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:
