Unfortunately I wasn’t at the DMF this year, but there were over 80,000 of you who were! This number far surpassed the goal of 60,000 and exceeded last years numbers by a huge amount.
Another record was broken this year as well – with the amount of recycling that was accounted for. The recycling program that was instituted collected more than 3,000 pounds of recyclables
The festival had approximately 10 recycling tents, staffed with volunteers that collected cans, bottles, and paper. Great Lakes Recycling, offering single stream capabilities, stored and processed all the recyclable materials, and once separated, the recyclables were transferred to a single location for further processing. Way to go everyone – ANYTHING counts.
