Recycling volunteers are needed for the 11th annual ZERO WASTE Lowell Folk Festival. The festival runs over three days, this year’s dates are: Friday night, July 23, Saturday July 24 – day and night, and Sunday afternoon, July 25.

The event’s composting effort is a national model. Click here to read a summary of the project. Since the program’s inception, 252,000 beverage containers have been recycled and 297,000 meals composted.

All volunteers will receive a Festival “Recycling Team” T-shirt and hat. Volunteers also get the opportunity to hear some great music, hang out with some great like-minded folks, do a little dancing and eat some fabulous ethnic food from the thirty ethnic food booths.
