3rd Annual Hoboken Green Fair
All are welcome at the 3rd Annual Hoboken Green Fair for a day of local goods, organic eats and learning news ways to save some green by "being green". Collection bins will be provided for residents and visitors to drop off their plastic bags and food waste.
The food waste will be collected by Action Carting and transported to their processing site. There it will undergo decomposition ultimately resulting in a high-grade top soil. Separating food waste from non-recyclable trash ultimately reduces our dependency on valuable landfill space, which, in addition to being environmentally friendly will help lower overall costs of doing business.
Acceptable food waste for the drop-off includes trimmings from fruit, vegetables, egg shells, beans, pasta, cheese, grains, bread, pet food, coffee grinds, tea bags and even meat, bones & shellfish. Consider storing your food waste in an airtight container in your freezer until Saturday.
