Washington’s Waste

The Problem

My wish is that Washington Middle School had better systems in place for recycling at our school.

Our Plan

My "Green Team" will dig through our lunchroom garbage and evaluate it. We will take multiple samples and determine the estimated amount of waste versus recyclables. The team would then show students, staff, and community the results from their findings and share their estimated calculations for a given year at WMS. The team would also provide ideas to help rectify the lack of recycling presently going on at Washington Middle School and help their school become a greener school in regards to student lunchroom waste.
