Why this petition matters

Started by Mia Perales

Composting Is a great way to reduce waste and limit our greenhouse gas emissions. With biodegradable lunch trays and milk cartons and minimal prepackaged food composting would be a relatively easy switch. Currently Omaha Northwest high school and various Westiside elementary schools have already implemented composting into their schools. Through Hillside Solutions, composting at South can take place with minimal effort from students and staff besides placing waste in the correct place. Composting is also a cost-effective strategy as we would be reducing our daily waste & if it is implemented it would save over 20 tons of waste from a landfill in a single school year.
