Bee Weekend 2016 was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came out to see the 10 million bees and helped us achieve our goal to reduce our total waste this year.
We exceeded our original goal of 75% and actually diverted 85% of all Bee Weekend waste from the landfill! In total, we produced...
- COMPOST: 67 pounds of food waste and compostable cups
- RECYCLE: 6.5 pounds of recycling materials
- TRASH: 13 pounds of waste to the landfill
With the help of Kelly Bell and Lane County Master Recycler Volunteers, we sorted through waste both Friday and Saturday after the event. It was fun getting our hands dirty for the environment.
