All classroom set ups should be consistent with the Simcoe County residential waste program. The Learning & Living Green Program was designed this way to help children remember what goes in the bin at home goes in the bin at school!
*Note: use larger green bin for areas of higher volume such as staff rooms/washrooms for paper towel waste.
For the best results, all bins should be individually labeled, placed all together with a sorting guide directly above.
Line the bins with bags to avoid messes, odours and pests (clear plastic for the recycling and certified compostable bags for the organics).
We encourage teachers to take ownership of their classroom waste program and assist children with proper sorting practices.
