Pupils are crazy for composting

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD primary school is set to become even greener after winning a device that can turn food waste into compost.

Youngsters at Dobcroft Infants at Millhouses now have a Composphere, made from recycled plastic, which is helping the school cut its carbon emissions and costs.

The compost it produces is being used to help fertilise the school’s gardens.

As well as helping the school with waste management, composting can help to teach the pupils about recycling and the environment.

The school won the prize at this year’s Eco-Schools Show, held this month.

It was given away by CO2Sense, a not-for-profit, low carbon expert company, that works with schools and other organisations to help them to cut their carbon emissions.
