This year the Fair is taking on the green initiative. We will be mindful of our impact on the environment and will reduce Fair waste and our carbon footprint. Read on to learn more about how you can help us go green at the Fair!
This year, recycling/composting stations will be set up for fair goers to dispose of their rubbish mindfully. Bins will be clearly labelled. Please take the time to place your rubbish in the correct bins. All food rubbish will be sent upstairs to the cafeteria and will be composted in our school composter.
There will be plenty of yummy cuisines to choose from in the cafeteria. Sit down and enjoy your meal with proper plating and cutlery. We are reducing our use of disposable plates and containers! Take away containers and cutler will be available for a nominal charge of $1.These containers are all compostable so please dispose of them in the specially marked bins. HK Recycles will come at the end of the day to transport all Fair rubbish to the correct processing facilities. We will receive a report showing how much we have recycled and how we have lowered our carbon footprint.
