Stratford High Undertake Waste Audit

The Impact team helped students at Stratford High undertake a waste audit this week, assessing what materials in their waste stream could be diverted from landfill. In particular, the group  are interested in the amount of food waste that is generated by the school, and how this could be used to feed chooks they would like to introduce on site at the school. Three days of waste from the school was collected, sorted, weighed and analysed by a team of 25 students. They found that 47kg of food waste is generated per week. That would feed quite a few chooks! Well done Stratford High on taking the initiative to look at their waste stream and what can be done to divert it to a good use.
