Green Bins find a new home at Nepean High School

By Claire Keenan, Kitchessippi Times, May 25, 2018

“Reduce, reuse, recycle” has always been a mantra at Nepean High School. But this year, “compost” has been added to the list. Just after students returned from March Break, some noticed the addition of a brand new compost bin in the cafeteria. Now, there are smaller green bins spread out around the school.

Eight other OCDSB high schools that have green bins, and Nepean is happy to become the ninth. Every day students throw out fruit cores, paper plates, and vegetable scraps which all go straight into the garbage. Now, thanks to the Environment Club, we can compost our food. The Environment Club initiated the idea of installing green bins in September 2017 and they finally completed the project in March 2018.
