In the Middle: Composting at Krueger

Karley Riggs

Did you know that Krueger Middle School is now composting and recycling lunchroom waste?

Our environmental science teacher, Ms. Daisy Lee, came up with this idea and we started in April of 2018. Every lunchtime, a group of student volunteers helps other students compost and recycle. This involves a garbage bin, a recycling bin, buckets for compost, bins for chip bags and clear plastic bags, and a “share table.” After eating, instead of just dumping the contents of trays into the trash, students put each item in the correct place.
