The Lebanon Farmers Market is proud to announce our new Waste Reduction Program for the 2019 season. We've worked hard alongside our vendors to identify ways to reduce waste at our bustling evening market!
This year we have a new 3 bin waste disposal system and at each station you'll see these images explaining how to properly dispose of your waste. Prepared food vendors no longer serve in styrofoam containers, and we've made the transition to compostable and recyclable containers for food intended to be consumed at the market.
💚 GREEN SIGNS = COMPOST BINS 💙 BLUE SIGNS = RECYCLING BINS 🖤 BLACK SIGNS = LANDFILL
We'll have volunteers in the park to help you navigate the new system, and with each passing week, we're going to get better and better at this!
What can you do to help reduce waste? 🌍
Bring your own reusable shopping bags and coolers to the market to take home your farm fresh products.
If you're taking food home with you for dinner, bring your own reusable containers.
Take the time to look at the signs at our waste stations so that you're properly disposing of items.
Head to the market information tent (located next to the live music!) and sign up to become a market volunteer.
SHARE this information to help spread the word about our market and the changes that we're making.
