How will this program work in the school setting?

​A pilot program was conducted at 3 local schools during the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 school years to determine what, if any barriers there were to implementing this program in the school setting.  The pilot program was extremely successful as waste diversion increased from 37% to 79.5%.  It was determined that there were few barriers to program implementation and that those encountered were easily mitigated through sound management practices.
