School Zero Waste Guide (Grades K-12)
This is an essential Guide for schools looking to reduce the amount landfill waste generated on campus. The SEI School Zero Waste Guide contains the information and tools necessary to establish a Green Team, set a waste diversion goal, develop a plan for reducing waste, establish a baseline for landfill waste generated, implement waste reduction measures, and verify reduction results. The Zero Waste Guide identifies the important materials, preparation tasks, and waste audit processes and analyses to assess your school’s waste and implement conservation campaigns. The Guide provides resources for understanding the school’s existing waste infrastructure and diversion baseline. After the initial assessment, students are provided with easy-to-use resources and ideas for dramatically decreasing the amount of landfill waste produced, and measuring and verifying their results. Successful results motivate students, faculty, and staff to deepen and sustain their collective changes once they’ve seen the significant implications for both school operating costs and the environment.
