Focus on Youth-composting
In 2014, we partnered with Greenfield Schools, Amy Donovan at the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District (FCSWMD) in an effort to bring Composting to Greenfield’s schools.
In 2016 we secured a grant from the DEP to start the process, and after three years of effort, today, all of our schools compost in their cafeterias.
Last year, because of these efforts, each month 5 Tons of food and paper waste did not go to the land fill!
Kudos to Amy Donovan, Superintendent Jordana Harper, and all the school principals, teachers and students for their efforts!
We are hopeful that students now have the habit of recycling and composting that they will carry forward in their lives.
