Waste Reduction

Waste Reduction

The Green Music Festival is committed to waste reduction and diversion, to minimize the amount of waste that is sent to landfill. To that end, we have implemented the following initiatives:

  • Separation collection of these items:
    • Compostable materials
    • Recyclable materials
    • Landfill
  • High-visibility Eco Stations are prominently placed and staffed with Eco Educators to inspire, educate and assist fest-goers with proper separation of compostable and recyclable items. Behind the scenes, Eco Captains invaluably maintain proper sortation with vendors and maintenance crew.
  • Sustainability strategy and management of compost, recycling and waste material is monitored and verified by Bright Beat, a Chicago-based sustainability consulting and project management firm.
