Thanks to Green Bellevue board members and volunteer high school students - and our partners at  Hillside Solutions, First Star Fiber, and Papillion Sanitation - this year's Bellevue Food Stock event was officially Zero Waste! This was a hugely successful effort that shows how changing our behaviors in simple ways can make significant positive impacts on our environment. 

The following are total amounts of materials collected:

Landfill:   95 gallons
Organics:   260 gallons
Recycling:   285 gallons
Energy Bag:   350 gallons

Total Waste=   990 gallons
% Waste Sent to the landfill=   9.6%
