Recycling

Please help green the Labor Day Festival! The Public Works/Green Team booths and volunteers will have new information regarding recycling and filling up your water bottles. We will also have some fun informational games at the Public Works booth.

There are water fountains at the Community Center, Municipal Building, Aquatic Center, and the Co-op grocery store. Some businesses and restaurants will also let you fill your water bottle. Look for the TapIt decal or water bottle flyer in store windows.

Trash, composting and recycling bins with instructional decals will be paired side by side throughout the festival grounds.
