Waste Reduction, Recycling & Composting at Arlington State Fair (VA)
The Arlington County Fair partnered with Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and Alcoa Foundation to increase waste reduction, recycling and composting through the strategic placement of recycling bins across the property. KAB also provided an accompanying educational booth, designed to raise awareness about the environmental and economic impact of recycling. The initiative in Arlington included the placement of 30 new, well-marked recycling bins located throughout the expo hall and midway. Twenty-five new wheeled bins were used in the picnic and vendor area. Compost stations were also set-up for both prep-waste from vendors and post-consumer waste from fair-goers.
