Illinois Sustainable Living and Wellness Expo & MEGA Recycling
April 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Explore Living Well & Living Green in Central Illinois at the Illinois Sustainable Living and Wellness Expo with up to 100 exhibitors and informative presentations. This interactive event celebrates Creating Healthy Communities by blending ideas for green alternatives and celebrating and promoting the many services and groups that promote healthy living, a healthy earth and healing. The ISLWE is McLean County’s major Zero Waste event. With the help of Midwest Fiber, who accepts all food waste for composting, this event is planned and managed to avoid any generation of waste that cannot be recycled, reused, or composted! In 2012, with approximately 4,000 attendees, only 20 pounds of waste was landfilled.
One-stop drop-off MEGA Recycling is available from 9am – 12pm in the north parking lot at the Shirk Center near the IWU football field. Please visit the MEGA Recycling portion of the ISLWE website for details on what you can drop-off!
