For the second year in a row, the Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival, an all-day festival featuring local musicians to be held Saturday, May 13, 2017 on Kingman Island, will be a zero waste music festival in the District. District agencies will strive to make this a zero waste event by encouraging festivalgoers to use the multi-bin zero waste stations to meet the goal of diverting 80 percent or better of all waste, recycling and composting. The Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE), the Department of Public Works (DPW), and volunteer coordination by event host Living Classrooms are providing guidance to help achieve the 80% goal.
