In a drive to become more sustainable and environmentally responsible, schools are reported to be increasingly looking into more environmentally friendly solutions, such as wormeries, to help reduce the amount of food waste going to landfill.
A research report has been commissioned by Enterprise Plants to look at the reality of the situation from the perspective of head teachers. The findings reveal a huge disparity in how schools currently address the removal and recycling of their food waste. The research examined a number of different issues relating to the food waste and handling methods of schools. This included not only current methods and future plans but also cost implications, the influence of environmental factors and the barriers to adoption. The results show a very positive attitude towards the principle of on- site composting with worms.
