Winter Park PTA will expand Winter Park’s Waste Free Wednesday cafeteria recycling and education program. WIN funds will also support expanding the program tofiveadditional New Hanover County schools in 2021. The program replaces plastic cafeteria items with compostable substitutes one day each week, reducing cafeteria waste from an average of 20 bags of trash to 2. The material is turned into compost that is returned to the school to fortify gardens where students grow produce and flowers and learn about soil, plants, and ecosystems.
