Schools and Composting

Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, the Alexandria City Public School system will begin using compostable plaid food boats for breakfast service instead of the polystyrene trays that ACPS has been using. Not only will this reduce about 500,000 trays, it will also lead to a cost savings for the school system.
Needless to say, this is a great accomplishment for ACPS.
