This year the Southeast Alaska State Fair is again striving to be a zero-waste event with the help of Haines Friends of Recycling. Last year we recycled and composted almost all the waste from the Fair; only 200 pounds ended up going to CWS after the four-day event. Thanks to a grant from the Chilkat Valley Community Foundation, this year our signage is improved and we will once again have volunteers helping all the Fair attendees figure out how to recycle everything from the food court. Thank you CVCF for your continued support of our recycling and composting efforts.
