Waste Recycling in Cafeterias
St. Francis Area Elementary Schools participate in a recycling program that sends cafeteria food waste to Barthold Farms, located in St. Francis. The program saves the district money by reducing garbage waste and therefore collection fees. It gives students an opportunity to help the environment and their community.
Secondary school cafeterias have plastic bottle recycling receptacles available for students to participate in recycling.
In addition to recycling efforts in the cafeterias, the kitchens practice recycling to reduce garbage waste as well.
