The Messy Truth about Students and Their Garbage

Friday, July 31, 2020

On average, students produce 1.5 pounds of waste every single day. What does that mean? Well for example, a high school with 535 students did a waste composition study and calculated their waste generation to be 72 tons/year. This is equal to (on average) five and a half school buses!

NRRA's Star of Sustainability provides schools with the preliminary tools necessary to assess present waste management practices. The Star evaluates the sustainability of school recycling programs. Schools get clear, unbiased suggestions for future improvement as well as a baseline for examination of the positive effects of changes.

Join the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, your recycling nonprofit, for this recorded webinar to discuss these issues. Cindy Sterling is the Grants Manager and Senior Educator at NRRA.
