For the past two years, Riverfest has made a concerted effort toward “Going Green” and reducing its environmental footprint. With the help of Bi-County Waste Management, “Riverfest Recycles” was created.
Festival goers are encouraged to take their plastic bottles to the Bi-County Solid Waste booth during the two-day festival, scheduled to take place September 7th-8th, to receive a raffle ticket which will then be entered into a drawing for a “Wide Screen Television”, courtesy of Bi-County Waste Management.
There is no age limit to participate or the number of bottles you can give, but only one raffle ticket will be given per family.
