You’ve heard of the 3 R’s of recycling (reduce reuse recycle) but have you heard of the 4 B’s of recycling. We made them up because, “Who says helping the environment can’t be fun?”
In 2016 the Escarpment Project’s Volunteer Appreciation BBQ was so large that we decided to turn it into a festival.
For 2017 the BBQ has a couple more food options and non-volunteers are invited to take part because we’re turning it into a festival. The festival portion is unique from other festivals. People can purchase/reserve rain barrels ahead of time and pick them up at the festival or try buying one at the festival. Purchasing one online will guarantee that they are available at the festival. You can do that by clicking here.
People can also do some serious recycling. After spring cleaning at home this year, people are invited to drop by the festival with certain items and toss them into our recycling bins. The Dumpster Service will take it from there. It’s part of our effort to keep items commonly found along the escarpment, out of the environment. We will be recycling tires, batteries, electronics (incl. TVs and computers), paint (paint cans) and scrap metal.
After the annual Escarpment Project clean up this year, on Sunday April 30th, join us for the 4 B’s of recycling which are a BBQ, Beer, Bands and Barrels (rain barrels). While you are there enjoy some BBQ burgers, chicken or sausage, have a beer and watch the bands. The clean up starts at 10 and the BBQ from 12 – 4
We are proud to present two fantastic local performers; Robin Benedict & Brad James.
Check out some of the vendor display booths. See what Hamilton environmental organizations are doing to protect the environment right here in Hamilton. A couple other featured booths are the Cleaner NRG booth where you can find out what solar option might fit your home to help you save money and the environment. There is also All Things Hemp Seed who will be there with their all-natural products including; soaps, bath products, cream, lotions and natural deodorant all made locally.
We hope you join us for this fantastic day. A great way to end Earth month.
