Oak Park and River Forest High School senior Graham Steele recently did his Eagle Scout Project at Beye School, his alma mater. Working with Beye’s “Green Team” Steele helped plan to build brown matter waste bins to hold leaves and paper. Brown matter is added to the
compostable lunch waste the school collects each day. The goal of the school is to create
compostable mulch for the grounds of the school. Beye students Ian Steele, Liam Nolen
and Ben Hoepf helped with the bins, along with Steele’s Boy Scout Troop 16 members,
Adam and Michael Rajter.
