Recycling at the Festival

On Saturday, EMU Earth Keepers sent members to ride the Recycle Bikes to the annual Harrisonburg International Festival.  Working from noon until 3pm, I rode around Hillandale Park with Earth Keepers’ co-president: Katie Jantzen.  We collected recyclables from stations set up around the festival.  Two other Earth Keepers members(Josh Kanagy and Elias Kehr) took over the second shift later in the afternoon.  We collected a total of seven large bags of recyclables mostly including plastic bottles, soda cans and glass bottles.  This work is an annual effort by EMU, coming out every year to the International Festival to pick up recycling.  This effort shows EMU’s interest in recycling, not only on their own campus, but in the whole community as well.
