Rhonda Mace, School Outreach Coordinator
CSWD provides an array of expertise, programs, and information to aid schools in improving their sustainability. Here is just some of what we offer:
Sustainability & Act 148 Compliance Assessment
CSWD can help schools interested in improving and ensuring their current trash, recycling, and composting programs are in line with state and local laws by conducting a walk-through visit and providing suggestions to improve sustainability and reduce waste.
Elementary, middle, and high schools in Chittenden Country can request recycling bins and compost buckets through the Resource Request Form or by contacting the School Outreach Coordinator. Schools may outfit each classroom and administrative office with one of each.
Staff & Faculty Training
Need a refresher course on what’s recyclable and compostable or how to manage hazardous materials? We can provide training for school staff and faculty so they can set good examples for students as they improve their own sustainability efforts.
Available to Chittenden County schools at no charge to help guide what goes where: recycling, composting, or trash.
Hazardous Materials Management Booklet
Did you know that every school must have a written Hazardous Communication Plan? Use Hazardous Materials Management to learn how to properly identify, reduce, and dispose of hazardous waste in K-12 schools. Includes a resource page, local success stories, and pollution prevention tips.View Guide
