Project Title & Description
Solid Waste Management Assistance
This project focuses on reduction of wastes generated at public festivals. Keep Knoxville Beautiful (KKB) will work with an outdoor festival called "Sundown in the City." During this 12 week event, approximately two tons of trash is generated at each concert. Through this project, KKB proposes to reduce the waste at this public event by a minimum of one ton per week, creating an immediate reduction of twelve tons of waste. KKB will accomplish this work by setting up as many as six (6) recycling, composting and waste disposal stations. The stations will consist of a 10x10 foot tent, banners, bins for plastic, glass and aluminum, clean mixed paper and composting.
