Wilton Zero Waste Schools Initiative
Wilton Public Schools has begun a journey to reduce the amount of waste produced in its schools.
With help from Wilton Go Green we have developed individualized plans for each school to ultimately increase recycling, compost food scraps and donate any uneaten food from our students to those in need.
We are asking for your support and participation in encouraging our students, families and staff to change the way they look at waste.
- Minimize Recycling Contamination
- Divert liquids, recyclables & food scraps from the waste stream
- Create a more organized, cleaner cafeteria experience
- Increase awareness among the Wilton Public School community about the importance of everyday waste reduction
- Carting pick ups altered to reflect our changing needs
- Developed the Wilton Public Schools Zero Waste Program Guide which was approved and adopted by the Board of Education - Click to Read the Full Guide
- Bi-Annual District-wide Zero Waste Weeks to highlight the program and increase education around waste reduction to our students, staff and families.
- Wilton Public Schools Case Study video created by Center for EcoTechnology
