Food Waste

Many TVDSB schools have chosen to install Greencones as a way to manage their food waste. 

Some schools collect in each classroom, and have a representative bring the container to a central location at the end of each day. A member of their EcoClub then brings the food waste to the Greencone. Other schools collect in their lunch room only, or in certain classrooms only.

Any food waste that is collected in your school, is then managed right at your location, and not sent to landfill. Starting small is still starting!

Below are the steps to acquire a Greencone for your school. The form, to be signed by your Maintenance Leader and principal, is located at the bottom of this page
