In the paper recycling bag, we collected 430 grams of paper and it was 98% paper recylcing with only 1 wrapper in it. The plastic recycling was 1.84 kg that was 95% correct.  The compost was the heaviest at 2.59 kg and was 99% done correctly.  Our weakest area was garbage with 650 grams but only 60% was garbage.  There were losts of paper towel and pizza crusts.  Both of these can go into the compost bin next pizza day!   Well done St. John XXIII>
