WCPO features LHS waste reduction initiative
Posted Wednesday, January 2, 2013
WCPO TV reporter Tony Mirones was on the Loveland High School (LHS) campus Wednesday, Jan. 2, interviewing junior Sarah Goldenberg about a student initiative to make the LHS cafeteria a zero-waste facility. The project was developed in Tracy Burge’s environmental science class, and involves a recycling and composting program to reduce cafeteria waste. Through recycling, the students had already reduced garbage disposal from 60 bags of trash per day down to 14 bags in just two years. By adding composting into the program, the goal was to get down the trash down to six bags per day, which would make LHS a no-waste high school. The students far exceeded the goal – only throwing out two bags of garbage this afternoon. Good job Tigers!
