About the School to Fuel Program
What is the School to Fuel Program?
The School to Fuel Program of Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails (BREATHE) launched in 2014, aimed at improving our local air quality by working with schools to collect food waste and convert that food waste into clean natural gas and electricity.
Why is recycling food waste important?
How does the program work?
BREATHE mediates the process of adding a food waste bin with local waste haulers and coordinates with school districts. BREATHE provides waste audits, training, materials, and support throughout the process.
Who can participate?
Any elementary school in Sacramento County. However, funding is limited to a small number of sites during the program’s pilot year.
