Black Bear Composting

Thanks to Black Bear Composting, Sutherland will be composting! Food waste and milk cartons will be allowed to be composted. This allows the school to become more environmentally friendly. Composting benefits everyone, here are some examples:

Build Healthy Soil- return nutrients to the soil to grow more food
Save Resources- save landfill space for true garbage - wastes with no further use
Reduce Greenhouse Gases- organics decomposing in landfills create methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than CO2
Show That You Care- people like to support businesses that support their community
Lower Your Costs- recycling organics reduces your trash collection needs _ dumpster size and frequency of pick-ups
