Through a generous sponsorship from Eartha Limited and a contract with Rural Action, Green Columbus is taking its recycling and composting efforts at Earth Day 2014 to the next level and striving for zero waste to landfill this year!
That's right - nada, zip, zero. But, you've got a job to do to help us reach this ambitious goal. Discard your materials at the resource recovery stations located throughout the Commons.
Food vendors are using all compostable or recyclable service ware to make it easy for each of us to do the right thing. Let's all show our gratitude for the resources given to us by dropping them in the proper bin and giving them a second life as a recycled product or a rich soil amendment.
Once you discard your materials at a resource recovery station, an innovative sorting line will be used by volunteers to capture the greatest amount of recyclables and compost possible. After the event the compostable material will be hauled offsite by Eartha Limited.
Filtered water stations will also be placed throughout the Commons so you can refill your own water bottle.
