Did you know that DCD composts and uses it in the community garden?  We recycle milk cartons, cans and bottles, and classroom paper in order to reduce waste. On April 22, in honor of Earth Day, DCD highlighted our community’s continuing efforts to support our environment and minimize waste with a Food Waste Awareness Event.

Food waste was collected and weighed during the 2nd and 3rd lunch periods.  The goal was to get as little waste as possible from each person.  The total waste per person was less than .92 ounces.  That is less than a cube of cheese!
