GRAS in the community - getting involved


Help grow the GRAS

•Managed Waste Team

(4-6 members)
GRAS restaurants have agreed to develop a 'Managed-Waste Program,' a program customized for each restaurant that directs waste (cork, composting, recycleables, reusables, garbage) into the proper place most efficiently and accurately - in the aim to reduce the amount of garbage going into the landfill.

Team duties:

- Audit restaurant recycling (taking pictures and notes)
- Determine recycleability of certain items (work with Recycling expert)
- customize 'waste bible' info sheet for each restaurant
- customize and place waste signage for each restaurant (work with restaurants)
- analyze and consult on proper placement of bins
- develop training program with restaurant manager
- consult on the necessary size and pick-up of dumpsters

This is a process we hope to streamline to be able to accomodate new restaurants as we go. Please contact us immediately if interested.
