Take Out the Trash
Trash Data

Students weighing trash By planning and following the Four Rs, we can send less trash to the landfill and conserve resources.

At Hard Bargain Farm Environmental Center, we challenge our visitors to bring as little trash as possible on their trips. For each group visiting our farm, we weigh their trash and record the data so groups can see how much trash they sent to the landfill compared to other schools.

In 2010, we began recording all trash from a group's two-day trip in the Trip Trash Data. Before 2010, we recorded only the group's lunch trash in the Lunch Trash Data.

Find your school in the School Trash Data Table for this school year and then find out how your trash adds up with our Trash Data Analysis.
