Thank you to Sons of Norway for their support of this program!
Events like the Uptown Art Fair produce a lot of waste — on average 2.44 pounds per person, per day. It is a challenge for an event of our size to implement waste reduction programs, but with the help of Sons of Norway, a local business located right in the heart of Uptown, we are able to coordinate bottle and can recycling as well as cardboard, plastics and the composting of food waste.
- In 2016, 3,360 pounds of recyclables was collected.
- In 2015, 3,230 pounds of recyclables was collected.
