    Managing Waste/Recycling Logistics For Large Festival
    Great Forest has been instrumental in helping us minimize trash and maximize recycling and composting at our large-scale festivals.  Through comprehensive planning, educational sorting stations and well-designed signage, Great Forest has moved us toward our goal of successfully separating waste at our events while educating event-goers on the importance and processes of sustainable waste management. Great Forest has had a big impact on our long-term sustainability initiatives as well by supporting our waste-management efforts and inspiring our staff to accomplish our goals of low-waste impact throughout the year.

    Great Forest Helps Participants Succeed In Mayor’s Challenge
    The Mayor’s Zero Waste Challenge resulted in the total diversion of 36,910 tons of material being diverted from landfill and incineration, which results in an enormous environmental benefit to our city… Great Forest played an important role in helping participants like the Peninsula New York reach a 67% diversion rate… It’s organizations like these that are helping forge the way to the city’s goal of Zero Waste to landfill by 2030.
