The Village's Green Block Party program is not available in 2021 due to COVID-19. Residents are still encouraged to limit waste by adhering to the following guidelines:
Encourage everyone to help make your block party a green event. For a zero-waste event, produce less than 10 percent landfill waste. This means 90 percent of waste produced at the block party will either be recyclable or compostable.
Go for Green Tips:
- Buy products that can be composted recycled to minimize waste
- Use compostable serveware and utensils instead of disposable foam or plastic
- Consider packaging before buying or ordering food items
- Choose locally grown foods and services
- Bring gray composting and blue recycling carts to the street to sort and collect waste
Not sure if items are recyclable? Refer to the Oak Park Recycling and Refuse Guide.
