And a big congratulations to Ecole Dieppe! They were randomly selected from all participating schools and have won 25 family passes for their students to visit Fort Whyte Alive over the coming months!
Schools can be a significant source of waste production, as the average student produces up to 30 kilograms of waste per year. Congratulations to these schools for taking up the challenge this past winter and tackling their waste production head on!
Are you a teacher visiting looking to visit next school year wondering how to get your class involved in the Trash Can Jam?
Step 1: Pre-register for the challenge by contacting the School Bookings office by phone: 204-989-8355 ext. 206, or by email at email@example.com.
Step 2: Complete the challenge! All disposable lunch garbage produced by your group must fit into the provided 5-litre pail (per 30 students).

Don't forget to use the hashtag #TDTrashCanJam to boast your student's waste reduction success at both FortWhyte Alive, and in the classroom!
While this is a fun way for classrooms reduce waste while on their field trip to FortWhyte, it would be even better if we could all cut down on the amount of trash we create each and every day. Let's all take the Trash Can Jam Challenge, shall we?
