B.YO. (Bring Your Own) Campaign Tabling

In April, we will be officially kicking off a new campaign we have been working on called the BYO Campaign or the Bring Your Own Campaign. Our goal for this campaign is to reduce single-use product waste (coffee cups, plastic water bottles/cups, and plastic bags) and to encourage educational attainment of why this is important for our community. We want to get the word out about this campaign.

This tabling event will be at various grocery stores, coffee shops, and determined destinations around town (see event description for details). At these tabling events you will promote the campaign, provide resources to community members, and hand out giveaways related to the campaign.

If interested in volunteering, please contact Brianna Magary at brianna.magary@flagstaffaz.gov or 928-213-2172

Earth Day

There are multiple ways to get involved in this year's Earth Day festivities. There will be a community cleanup that starts at 9 AM and Master Recyclers have participated in the past by educating fellow volunteers about which items can be collected for recycling. 

The actual Earth Day Celebration will start at 11 AM. Master Recyclers will have a table that can be used to provide recycling outreach, educate residents about food waste, or any other activities you have in mind. Depending on how many people are interested, we may have to break the time down into smaller slots, so more people can get a chance to get some hours in. 

If interested, please contact Dylan Lenzen, dlenzen@flagstaffaz.gov or 928-213-2158.

Coconino County Employee Earth Day Celebration

This will be at the County's employee Earth Day celebration. The event is Thursday, April 19th from 11am-1pm on the County Courthouse Lawn. One of the themes is waste reduction; that area will have a recycling wheel, an office supply swap, information on county recycling, recycling drop-off for the Hazardous Products Center, and hopefully a reusable Keurig prize giveaway. We were hoping to get one or two Master Recyclers to represent the program who can talk about Flagstaff City specific recycling.  There will be pizza and it should be a fun way for a person or two to get 2 of their volunteer hours. 

If interested please reach out to Lauren Bernas from the County's Green Team (lbernas@coconino.az.gov).

NAU Green Game

Green NAU is asking for your help at their upcoming Green Game. The Green Game is their annual home football event where they have recycling volunteers come out to tailgating (two hours before the game) to educate tailgaters about what’s recyclable or not, give them recycling bags, and in general patrol the trash and recycling bins. During the game, all the concessions are compostable so they shoot for a zero waste game where everything goes into either recycling or compost!

They’re hoping to get 5-10 volunteers to come out and work the tailgate. They’re also looking for one of those volunteers to get the Recycling Game from the City and bring it and work it during tailgating. If you’re able to come or be the Recycling Game lead, please email NAU’s Waste Minimization Coordinator Erika Isabella Bert <eib23@nau.edu> .

You’ll also get an awesome recycling t-shirt! Below

NAU Green Game

When: Saturday, October 21, 2pm-4pm

Where: NAU Skydome, park for free in tailgating Skydome parking lot.
