Lunchroom Waste Audit
Lunch Recycling & Composting Programs
Does your school want to reduce waste and increase recycling? SCARCE can help! We can come to your school after lunch and guide your students in conducting a waste audit of lunchroom trash.
The waste audit is a problem-based learning activity in which students participate in a hands-on evaluation of the garbage problem in their school lunchroom. They witness, firsthand, lunchroom-generated waste and are asked to design creative solutions.
Waste audit results are an invaluable resource if your school is working towards increasing recycling, reducing food waste, or starting a lunchroom composting program. Ask us for a How-To packet when you call to schedule.
Best suited for: grades 4-12
Program Length: 1.25-1.5 hours
Max. Recommended Class Size: 40 students
