The ETHS Central Kitchen has a large recycling dumpster next to the trash dumpster. For every one bin of trash, the central kitchen collects approximately 2-3 containers of recyclable items/day.
Items recycled in the main kitchen include:
- All cardboard cases (50-100 cases/day)
- Aluminum cans (up to 80 cans/day)
- All plastic containers
The student cafeterias have garbage can units that make it easy and accessible to recycle.
In collaboration with the ETHS Green Team, the Nutrition Services Department composts all biodegradable materials every Monday.
Smart Packaging Choices
The Nutrition Services Department makes every effort to use only recyclable disposable packaging and materials. Only 10% of our packaging is non-recyclable.
