Our goal is to make this event as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible. Our recycling and composting efforts have reduced our landfill waste by 75% over the past four years.
The Zero Waste volunteers are available to help festival attendees. Watch for recycling stations throughout the festival.
Vendors please follow these guidelines:
Food Vendors: Our compost facility processor does not accept compostable plastic products. Here are the guidelines for this year’s festival:
1) Recyclable #1 or #5 plastic clear cups (NO #6 cups) OR
2) Compostable paper* cups
*Compostable paper means it MUST be on the Cedar Grove list of acceptable paper products: http://www.cedar-grove.com/index.php/accepted-list. (No compostable plastic – our compost facility does not accept it.)
Tableware – Compostable paper* plates, bowls, deli paper and portion cups. No compostable plastic.(Note: Portion cups are not recyclable in our system; please use paper ones or dispense condiments in bulk. Also, please avoid foil – our hauler does not recycle it.)
