Monday, September 16, 2013 • 10:23am
The Highlands Festival at Waterloo is an environmental festival celebrating local food, music, arts, history and cultural and natural resources of New Jersey.
This rain-or-shine event will delight people of all ages and feature a wide range of activities, including performances by 20 New Jersey musicians/bands, Local Food Court, Crafts and Fair Trade Marketplace, Living Green Expo, workshops, an art show, Lenape Village activities, canal rides, kayaking, and guided nature hikes.
In keeping true to our mission, we will strive to reduce the amount of materials going into the waste stream as we strive towards zero festival waste.
At the festival, you will notice “Zero Waste” stations where recyclables and compostables are collected separately from trash. To make sorting easier, vendors will provide food in compostable or recyclable service ware. When visiting our festival, please be sure to look for these stations to handle your waste.
The mission of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition is to protect, restore, and enhance the water and other natural and cultural resources of New Jersey's Highlands, now and for the future.
