Sycamore Community Schools, Cincinnati

High School, Junior High, Symmes Elementary, & Blue Ash Elementary


Sycamore Community School’s mission is to be empowering, innovative, inclusive, accountable, and relationship-driven. As part of this mission Sycamore has been a food waste reductions leader educationally and operationally for years.

Food waste is a major source of greenhouse gasses and cost billions in natural resources and supply chain losses each year.

Every 46 pounds of food waste composted with GoZERO removes the equivalent of one typical day’s worth of driving emissions from the atmosphere.

In order to continue having an increasingly positive impact Sycamore is excited to invite community residents to subscribe below and bring compostable food waste from home to district food waste compost drop-off stations where it will be composted rather than landfilled along with the school’s cafeteria waste.

Learn more about how food waste drop-off stations work, why they matter, and how to get started.

See what items are acceptable and prohibited for for drop-off.
