Green Team

We're Committed to Improving Clean-up At the Festival Each Year

The National Cherry Festival has an entire squad of volunteers and volunteer teams that work specifically to maintain cleanliness during and after the festival through recycling, waste management and composting. These volunteers (thank goodness for them) even roll their sleeves up and sort garbage from compost and recycling so we can responsibly dispose of waste to the best of our abilities.

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!

Green Team Sponsor: American Waste

We couldn't keep our festival nearly as eco-conscious and clean without our wonderful sponsor American Waste. Learn more about American Waste and the services they offer our community here.
