We encourage everyone to go beyond recycling and help us meet our Zero Waste Goal. There will be several “Zero Waste” Stations at the Fair with volunteers standing by to show you how to effectively dispose of your waste products. By bringing your own service ware for your food and drinks and diverting waste to recycling and compost containers, we can significantly reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill.
