Earth Recycle

Here’s a great way to celebrate Earth Day for Bay Area makers –

Waste Wise Market Celebration
10 am – 2 pm – on 4/22 (TUESDAY) and 8am – 2pm – on 4/26 (SATURDAY)

Join us in celebrating the launch of a new initiative to reduce waste generated at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market!!

All-day Waste Wise activities – During the entire Tuesday market, enjoy the following activities:

New Waste Wise stations – Compost and recycle to your heart’s content at our new Waste Wise stations. Volunteers will be on hand to help you determine what’s compostable, what’s recyclable, and what’s waste.

Reusable bag giveaway – If you’re a local shopper, come to the South Side of Ferry Building for a free reusable tote bag. Bay Area residents only–shoppers may be asked to show ID to determine eligibility.

Waste Wise educational display – Learn more about what happens to food scraps when they go in the trash versus when they get composted. Touch compost created by San Francisco’s food scraps. Learn how to discern compostable from non-compostable food service ware.

The Reclaim Game – Test your recycling and composting knowledge with a fun interactive game.

Information tables – The San Francisco Department of the Environment will have a special table in the market to provide information and answer questions about the Fantastic 3 program (compost, recycling and waste). Golden Gate Disposal/Sunset Scavenger will have a special table in the market to provide assistance and information for those interested in adding to or changing their recycling and composting service.

The Maker Faire – A special table in the market will showcase local crafts people making things with recycled and reclaimed materials and other green projects.
