Events generate a large amount of waste, and Harvest Vegfest is committed to minimizing the amount going into landfills. This event will be the first Zero Waste festival in York. We will be recycling along with composting food at this event, and we need your help! We ask that vendors please support our efforts to be an environmentally responsible event. To assist you, we have compiled the following information and helpful hints.

Please Minimize Waste

First and foremost, we would like to ask you to minimize the amount of waste generated from your booth. Please avoid the use of straws, plastic film, lids, etc. unless absolutely necessary. We urge vendors to use recyclable and compostable utensils and containers. If you would like a list of products that Zero to Go recommends, we can send it to you!​

Please Recycle

The following materials will be collected for recycling:

  • Cardboard and clean paper
  • Plastic bottles, plastic containers
  • Aluminum cans
  • Glass

Here is a list from Zero to Go​ ​of things to keep in mind:

  • No styrofoam​ (pretty pretty please!)​.​
  • Compostable items should say ​”​compostable​”​ on the packaging, not ​”​bio-degradable​”​.
  • We recommend no straws or condiment cups but, if necessary, make sure they are compostable.​
  • A​​ll​ utensils should be compostable.​
  • ​No aluminum with paper lining – it is trash.​
  • Hot cups should be compostable.​
  • Cold cups can be regular plastic. ​
  • Aluminum over plastic​,​ if possible.
  • Bring extra buckets for food waste, vendors will be asked to separate compostables, recycling and trash as well.​

Composting Efforts

We will be composting food scraps at this event.
