The City of Fairfax Reduces Waste at the Fall Festival

Post Date:10/14/2013

Festivals often generate a large amount of waste.  In order to reduce waste at this year’s Fall Festival, the City of Fairfax provided recycling service and containers.  The Environmental Sustainability Committee and the Community Appearance Committee also and gave away free reusable bags in order to reduce the amount of plastic bag usage.  

Thanks to the support volunteers we collected 45 bags of recycled material, gave away 400 reusable bags and educated festival vendors and attendees on the importance of reducing waste and recycling.  Next year we hope to get even more people to recycle and reduce waste. 

We thank all of the volunteers, vendors and attendees that supported our efforts to be an environmentally friendly event!
