What are waste audits?
As part of our Premier Green School certification, we are required to do an annual waste audit. The waste audit is a formal, structured process used to quantify the amount and types of waste being generated by Sunstone. Information from the audit helps us to identify our current waste practices and how they can be improved.
We collect landfill, recycling, and compost from each classroom and the common areas. The children sort and weigh items. We record the weights of the categories, estimate the volumes, and compare our results to the previous years. This process has proved to raise awareness of recycling and composting immensely and Sunstone has reduced our landfill significantly over the past seven years. Please help us continue! We know this is not the most glamorous job, but it is very important to our culture and required to maintain our Premier Green School Certification. Your participation is much appreciated!
