Cut down on waste at your next block party by making it a Green Block Party event. Residents who sign up to host a Green Block Party are provided boxes to separate trash, recyclables and organic waste. The initiative is focused on educating residents on waste reduction and diversion, and why it is important for the health of our community and environment. Fun, interactive, and kid-friendly activities are also available upon request via local non-profit Green Community Connections.
