Bribie Island State School
We are composting food scraps in OSCA (OnSite Composting Apparatus) to be used in our new Enrichment Garden where students will learn all about composting and gardening.
Our team assists with the School Wide Waste Minimisation Program (SWWMP) by checking and cleaning classroom landfill and recycling MURFE crates. We also have an aluminium can collection cage and students love crushing cans to put into it. Also we use shredded paper from the office to make combustible paper bricks.
As part of the SWWMP our team collects the organics bins from throughout the school everyday and place them next to OSCA. The scraps are put into OSCA every day, about 60-80L a day. We are almost ready to remove our first batch of compost and put it into our new Enrichment Garden. We also have 2 worm farms and are being donated a commercial size one shortly.
