Successful implementation of waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting in schools brings many rewards, including potential cost savings for tight school budgets. NERC was awarded a United States Department of Agriculture Rural Utility Services Solid Waste Management Grant in 2009 to provide direct technical assistance and training in waste reduction, recycling, and composting to rural schools in Connecticut, New York, and Delaware. Eight schools participated in NERC’s Waste Reduction and Recycling (WR&R) project over the course of two years. Numerous resources were developed for the project, including:
Action Tip Sheets
Presentations that can be given in Schools and Classrooms
“Small Town/Rural School Waste Reduction & Recycling” Webinar
"School Composting Options” Webinar
Composting in the Classroom, an article by Athena Bradley in Resource Recycling magazine
