US Green Building Council - Ohio Chapter - Southwest Ohio Region

Green Apple Day of Service at Pleasant Hill Academy Posted by admin on 09/9/16 in Schools

The Cincinnati Green Apple Day of Service took place on Tuesday, September 20th at Pleasant Hill Academy in College Hill. The USGBC SW Ohio Region partnered again this year with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful to help the students recycle their lunch waste. The volunteers assisted students sorting their food and paper waste. At the end of the lunch period the results were measured and 16.8 lbs. of recycling, 14 lbs. of compost and 102.2 lbs. of trash were collected. Students received a “recycle” rubber bracelet for their efforts.

The waste-reduction project included education through classroom presentations and assemblies provided by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. The Civic Garden Center is working with the school to use the compost in their own garden!

Special thanks to Barb Wriston-Ruddy and Kara Luggen of Keep Cincinnati Beautiful for their help in putting this program together.
