GREENFest was founded by Republic Services and the Green Alliance in 2010 with the vision to educate the community on recycling, environmental topics and services available to them to enjoy and live a more sustainable lifestyle.
The mission of the GREENFest Earth Day celebration is to bring together the sustainable community and link professional organizations, businesses, community leaders, residents and municipalities in one collaborative celebration in honor of national Earth Day. Together we are stronger and more impactful.

What is a Zero Waste Event?
This year's Greenfest will be a net zero waste event. The approach to creating a net zero waste event is to start with reducing the amount of waste generated, re-purposing waste, maximizing recycling of waste stream to reclaim recyclable and compostable materials with disposal being virtually non-existent.
As a net zero waste event, the organizers would like you think about the items that you purchase as activities or give-aways.
Are the items recyclable or compostable?
Is the packaging recyclable or compostable?
A net zero waste strategy eliminates the need for landfills, protects human health, optimizes use of limited resources and keeps the environment clean.
