Let’s talk rubbish!
When carrying out a waste audit in your school, the aim is to find out if there are opportunities to reduce your waste even further. The best way to go about this is by actually finding out exactly what type of waste you generate and then to weigh the waste your self. However, this might not always be possible and sometimes you might have to estimate how much waste is in your bin bag or wheelie bin. We have created a handy guide for you so that you can guess how much waste you are generating and, better yet, how much you might reduce your waste by. You can also see that we are sharing a handy check list with you so that you can check what type of waste is generated even before it ends up in the bin or in your lunchbox before you take it home. Good luck with your work!
