Food Scrap Composting

What do you mean we can use our own garbage?

With the SEE food scrap composting program, students get hands-on experience turning cafeteria food waste into nutrient-rich fertilizer. Students learn to separate lunch scraps into bins for compostable and non-compostable materials, then student volunteers add it daily to the SEE compost bins outside.

SEE will install a 2-bin composting system with the necessary tools on your school grounds, then work with your students, teachers and staff to streamline cafeteria food scrap collection and composting.
