Zero Waste Faire Offers Education and Complimentary Recycling
Fairfield County’s largest waste faire is officially back after a two-year COVID hiatus. The Zero Waste Faire is an in-person event for the Fairfield County community to be educated and engaged on resources and actions that can inspire indoor and outdoor green living. The event will be held on June 5, from 11am to 4pm, at The Miller-Driscoll School, in Wilton. Committed to achieving a zero carbon footprint, the Waste Faire will plant a tree/native green species in the Wilton area for every pound of garbage collected at the event.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their large and small household items for complimentary recycling with on-site services, including Bye Bye Mattress, three bags or boxes or equally sized items of household goods or appliances by Junkluggers (pianos not accepted), Bay State Textiles and Take2 for electronics waste.
Residents of all ages in Wilton and the Fairfield County community are encouraged to attend. The entire family can get thousands of ideas on green living through interactive learning experiences. The event will feature guest speakers and experts on green living throughout the day, and it is wheelchair accessible.
A suggested donation is $5 for individual attendees and $20 for families. Proceeds will benefit Wilton Go Green, a not-for-profit committed to engaging, educating and
inspiring Wilton residents to embrace a lifestyle of environmental sustainability.
