Woah, that’s a 94% waste diversion rate – we rule!

Thank you Zero Waste volunteers!  We could not have done it without you.  We reached a 94% waste diversion for the Silver Rush Run and Bike.  Thanks to you we had volunteers at 7 aid stations over two days and the start/finish and were able to divert over 20 yards of waste, turning it into valuable recycle and composted material.

We composted 3800 pounds and recycled over 4000 pounds of material.  This equals 20,600 pounds of carbon emissions reduced just this weekend.  Yay us!
 
We would love to see you again in August at the 100 Mountain Bike and Run.  There are still open volunteer spaces.  Sign up at:
