Got Trash? The 2013 Waste Audit

Dumpster diving on Thursday, Oct. 17 was an eye-opener for several students and their principal, Jason Baeten, of the East Bay School for Boys which shares the First Church campus, and Green Team members Paul Chapman, Freddie Bunge and Charlotte Russell.

We get high marks for accurately placing materials in the green bin and recycling. But only about 22% of the content of the trash dumpster was actual trash, while 50% was green waste and 28% was recyclables. Emma Fujii prepared the official Waste Audit Report which you may download here.
