School Food Scrap Diversion

We provide Addison County schools with technical assistance to get started diverting food scraps from the landfill, including performing waste audits, providing food scrap collection containers, and recommending options for food donation, food scrap collection, on-site composting, share tables and sorting stations. The District also provides grant funding for waste reduction and diversion projects in schools such as water bottle filling stations and cafeteria sorting stations. Call us at (802) 388-2333 or email jessie@ acswmd.org for a free consultation and more information about grants.
