The grant program offered by the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District allows local, non-profit and tax exempt organizations to apply for funds to undertake waste reduction, recycling and environmental education projects. Lenn Detwiler, Executive Director for the Solid Waste Management District said, “This ‘Save the Silverware!’ program is a great example of waste reduction and we are excited to be able to support the Avon schools in their effort. I believe this project will ultimately benefit the environment and save the schools money in the long-run. One of the most thrilling aspects of this program is that it was initiated by the Food Service Department—they were the ones that saw the opportunity and took advantage of it.”
Emily Cates, Food Service Administrator for the Avon Community School Corporation, submitted the grant application. She explained, “We believe this grant will help our students become better environmental stewards. We plan to use signage in the lunch rooms showing them that not everything has to be discarded – in this case, reuse is a good use.”
Ms. Cates said that by replacing disposable silverware with real silverware, Avon Schools will see an annual cost savings of $5,000.
