Students set example on recycling
I agree that switching to plastic bags in compost bins is a step backwards.
We are at a small OCDSB high school program in Stittsville, called Frederick Banting Alternate Site. We compost food and paper towel waste at our school to divert waste from landfills. On Fridays, prior to classes bringing their blue, black and compost to our recycle audit area outside my class, students get together to make the week’s compost liners from newspapers. To assure safety, we researched and discovered that the dyes used in the Citizen are vegetable-based and safe for compost.http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/letters/saturday-letters-how-to-use-that-green-bin
