Worth County R-III Composting Feasibility Study, Waste Assessment Complete
Students at Worth County R-III spent the first week in December conducting a cafeteria Waste Assessment. The purpose of the project was to collect data for the Composting Feasibility Study. Prior to beginning the assessment the high school students educated the elementary student as to what to expect during the week of the Waste Assessment. Each day of the week the students from all grade levels sorted out recycling, food waste and trash into separate containers when they were finished with their lunch. The next step in the study is to evaluate the Waste Assessment and consider how to compost the food waste. The students will evaluate different compost methods that might be feasible for the school to use to turn the food waste into usable compost. The students plan to have the analysis done by early February.
