Hillside News Brief

Farewell, Mrs. Myer
Community Club Family Event Saturday, January 26, from 12:00-2:00 p.m.
Hillside has reduced lunchroom trash bag use by half as of 1-18-19. We composted 676 pounds of material in just one week, and the landfill diversion rate for our waste in the lunchroom is 79%!
For perspective, a 90% diversion rate or more is considered zero waste; this means we are just 11% from having a “zero waste lunch.” As we continue to compost, we will be looking ahead to additional measures we can take to recycle in the lunchroom.
Hillside Solutions manager, Brent Crampton, reports that the landfill diversion rate for Hillside is among the highest he has seen! Keep up the good work, Hillside!
