Zero Waste Events rely on the help of volunteers to educate event patrons and avoid contamination in the recycle and compost collection bins. Volunteers on the Zero Waste Team oversee a three-bin Zero Waste Station (one large compost bin, one large recycle bin, one small trash bin) to guide event patrons on which bin to place their materials in. This helps us spread awareness on the vast amount of our "waste" that can really be diverted from the landfill through composting and recycling.
