Waste-Free Picnics
Make your picnic "waste free"

PicnickingPicnicking is a great way to relax outdoors with family and friends. You can keep your picnic friendly to the environment as well. A "waste-free picnic" means nothing from your outing ends up in a landfill and all leftover materials are reused, recycled or composted. Check out these tips for creating your own waste-free picnic.

Respect your surroundings

  • Walk on paved paths and picnic only in designated grassy areas, not in planting beds.
  • Be mindful of the neighbors enjoying the area—both human and animal—especially as you arrive and leave.
  • Dispose of your recycling, compost and trash in the correct receptacles when you locate them.
