A Zero Waste Festival

We are very excited to be working again with Green Chair Recycling Inc. to go zero waste. Remember, do not use the metal City bins on the day-of. INSTEAD check out the awesome RECYCLING STATIONS that Green Chair has.

Follow these tips to help:
1) Reduce, reuse and recycle!
2) Hold on to your litter until you find a Recycling Station
3) Make memories, not garbage
