CES Composting and Recycling Program

WHY COMPOST?

One head of lettuce will decompose naturally outside in 2-3 weeks.

 

In a landfill

it takes

25 YEARS

to decompose! 

CES Green Team

The Cambridge Elementary Compost Program continues to grow into a sustainable system that will be maintained by the new CES "Green Team."

 

The Green Team is a volunteer group of students that get trained to help with food waste

at lunch. They help students know which remaining parts of their lunches are recyclable, compostable, and what items belong in the trash. They work together to help keep

over 400 milk cartons and fruit cups from hitting the landfill as well as over

25 pounds of food out of the landfill each day!
