  5. 5. “Simple behavioral and operational measures alone can reduce energy costs by up to 25%.”<br />EPA Report: “Clean Energy Strategies for Local Governments: Energy Efficiency in K-12 Schools”<br />
  6. 6. “The Wichita Public Schools has been actively engaged in an energy management program focused on behavior modification for more than sixteen years . . . Our documented savings which we contribute to changes in behavior and attitudes have averaged $1,911,574.42 per year for the most recent three years. This represents approximately a 20% reduction in total utility expenses.”<br />David Banks, Energy Manager<br />Wichita Public Schools <br />

  14. 14. Sustainability:Waste Management<br />
  15. 15. ASD WASTE MANAGEMENT<br />In 2008 the Anchorage School District added a recycling component to its waste management program. <br />A district-wide mixed-paper recycling program was phased in during the 08-09 School year and made possible through partnerships with the city’s Solid Waste Services, Alaska Waste and local non-profits. <br />
  16. 16. SAVINGS & ADJUSTMENTS<br />Dumpster adjustments to offset recycling rental & service fees<br />ADJUSTMENT EXAMPLE<br />The adjustment at Rabbit Creek saves the school district $342 a month ($3,420 over a 10 month period).<br />The addition of a 4 cubic yard recycling dumpster at Rabbit Creek (cost - $87 a month) and the removal of 1 of their 4 cubic yard trash dumpster (cost - $429 a month). <br />

  20. 20. Trash Compactor Tipping/Hauling Fees<br />Average monthly compactor costs drop by over $3K<br />2005 - 2008 NO RECYCLING<br />$18,017ave. monthly tip/haul fees adjusted to today's $<br />2009 - 2010 RECYCLING<br />$14,460ave monthly tip/haul fees adjusted to today's $<br />Since the implementation of the district-wide mixed-paper program the average monthly compactor costs in today's $ have dropped by approx. $3,800 a month (BLUE LINE). <br />We can expect to see this trend continue (GREEN LINE) as education and outreach programs continue.<br />
  21. 21. ASD WASTE MANAGEMENT SAVINGS<br />
  22. 22. Vision<br />The Anchorage School District cultivates and sustains the awareness to seek opportunities to reduce energy usage and waste throughout the district. To achieve this Operations works with all departments and campuses to ensure systems are in place to effectively and efficiently reduce energy use, consumption and waste whenever possible in a manner that is sensitive to environmental concerns and cost effective to the district.<br />Energy Conservation and Waste Reduction – Make it a habit - it not only makes fiscal sense, but exemplifies our commitment to be good stewards of our environment.<br />
