VENETA, Ore. — Around 200 volunteers at the Oregon Country Fair will be working this weekend to keep trash out of landfills.

Before the gates to the fair even open, volunteers are making signs and preparing recycling bins.

Last year, the recycling crew composted two times the amount of waste that ended up in a landfill. And, they say they’re trying to put even less in the dumpsters this year.

“Try to minimize the impact our event has on the earth. There’s a lot of people that come out here, we have around 14,000 family of the vendors, the entertainers, the staff, and over 50,000 visitors over three days,” said Nick Badovinac, County Fair Recycling crew member.

Recycling centers will be set up all around the fairgrounds.
