Under the leadership of MDP grantee One Cool Earth, students sorted and weighed waste according to material type and whether it was bound for the landfill, recycling, or compost bin (largely dependent on the degree of "ooey gooeyness"). The audit marked the launch of recycling service at the school as well as vermicompost bins on the school grounds. The programs will be ushered in by a "green team" of upper-grade students stationed at recycle and compost bins during lunch.
