In this week’s episode, Green Scene visits Glebe Elementary School to talk with the students who are part of the school’s Green Team about their waste audit. Students wanted to determine how much trash was actually being recycled and how much was thrown in regular trash cans. In groups, students were asked to sort bags of trash by type of material. Students found that nearly 40% of trash could have been recycled. Based on these results the Green Team will focus on education to better inform the student body, teachers, and community about which items should be recycled.
