What can I do to help?

Help us make Lakewood a zero waste community by reducing what we send to the landfill at the Big Boom Bash! 

  • Bring a zero waste picnic. Pack your food and drinks in reusable containers or buy paper products that can be composted and bottles that can be recycled. Avoid disposable bags and styrofoam.
  • Find a zero waste station. Look for the three zero waste stations at the event, where you can recycle and compost your waste. Each station will have a zero waste volunteer to help you sort your materials. 
  • Share our mission with your friends and family. Be sure to encourage your friends and family to join us in our zero waste effort.
