Compost

One way we can all help our local environment is by composting! It diverts food waste from harmful landfills, builds nutrient-rich soil, avoids methane emissions, supports sustainable farmers, and so much more! Plus: 60% of your waste stream is compostable!

If you don’t compost at home, celebrate Earth Day by bringing one day’s food waste to school. We’ll take your (reusable, washable) container at drop-off, dump it in our CompostNow bin, and hand the container back to you. Here’s what you can you bring:

  • peelings
  • eggshells
  • paper towels
  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • pizza boxes
  • tea bags, coffee grounds
  • nuts and shells
  • bones, skin
  • cereal, bread

When: April 21 and 22, 7:40-8:10 am

Where:

  • Lower School (either entrance)
  • Upper School (Kenan drop-off area)
  • (The Middle School hopes to do this at a later time, after new routines get established for everyone coming on campus)
