Recycling at Ribfest
We are pleased to announce that a Recycling/Organics Collection Program is once again in place this year. We would like to personally thank Ron and Ann Oatman who spearheaded a team of committed Rotarians and Community volunteers to enable Ribfest to continue to improve upon its commitment to producing an environmentally friendly event.
Organics includes all food, bones & paper waste, like the GreenCart program + all biodegradable food containers, beverage cups, straws & cutlery!
