At Cedar River Academy we understand the importance of reducing our waste. Every student in the school learns how to sort waste according to compost, recycling, and landfill. Every classroom has a waste station with bins for all three components, and we are the only school in the district to compost our food waste. Our community partner EcoCare Supply (the Compost Ninja) picks up our composting each week, and our “Little Ninjas” collect the compost bins from classrooms each week.
The video below explains our cafeteria waste management line. Every student Pre-K - 5th grade goes through the line at breakfast and lunch to properly dispose of waste. Just like everything else we teach at school, we hope our students apply this learning at home to reduce the waste created in all areas of their life.
