At WES, the data shows that we are producing about 47 pounds of trash (destined for a landfill) per day, and around 17 pounds of recycling. We are also producing about 35 pounds of compost per day. Our goal is to reduce the weight of our trash, and increase the amount of recycling or composting that we do each day.
Gerry weighs our trash and recycling each day. The cafe staff weighs all our compost. Sustainable Woodstock and Farm to School helped us purchase scales and compost buckets for classrooms.
