RSR CHALLENGE: MSJE LEADS THE WAY: Feb 2016
Two separate events at schools were organized by StopWaste in February 2016 where Fremont families could sign up for a free green kitchen pail and compostable bags as a part of a pilot project aimed at reducing overall waste in Alameda county. In the last waste audit, Fremont fared the worst among all cities in Alameda with nearly 50% of landfill waste in Fremont found to be recyclables or compostables that could have been diverted by proper sorting. More details regarding this challenge can be found here.

GREEN ASSEMBLY BY STOPWASTE: Dec 2015
In December of 2015, StopWaste presented an assembly on the importance of recycling and composting on campus. This was done with 5th graders from Ms. Brah's class who presented a skit to demonstrate the  4R's and how we can keep our campus and communities green by recycling and composting more.


2014-2015 Events

LUNCH FOOD WASTE INITIAL PROGRAM LAUNCH AT MSJE NOV 2014:
The food waste program was officially launched at MSJE with the support of the Fremont Unified School District and Republic Services, our local waste management company. We  procured green bins for our campus and with a school-wide assembly trained the students and parent volunteers to help sort waste at lunch and divert recyclables and compostables appropriately. This now includes a separate service for organics/compost pickup two days per week. From about 10-12 bags of landfill trash that were generated each day at lunch in our school, we went to a single bag of landfill, a single bag of recyclables and 1-2 bags of compost each day. This continues to be an ongoing project managed at MSJE with the help of parent and student volunteers.
