Centerville Waste Audit Report 2010-11


Centerville Waste AuditCenterville Waste Audit31 students in Mr. Vilkins' Leadership class conducted a waste audit of their schools cafeteria garbage on Oct. 20th, 2010. Students identified a lot of uneaten food, and had fun assembling it into four distinct lunch meals. Students were initially interested in educating their peers about recycling, but the waste audit highlighted the impact of food scraps and uneaten food as well. This spring, all 7th grade math classes at Centerville will perform waste audits and compare their data to find larger trends in the school's waste stream while tackling math standard 1.3 (fractions, decimals, and percentages).
