Composting Booth and Food Waste Collection at Encinitas Oktoberfest

Jump in the lively fun of Encinitas's Oktoberfest! The event will feature authentic German music, food and beers from German & local San Diego breweries, the Gemütlichkeit Alpine Dancers, carnival rides, a street craft faire featuring 200 vendors and more! 

Solana Center will host a booth to educate folk about reducing waste and its importance in keeping our planet healthy and our society sustainable. In addition to our booth, volunteers will help us manage waste disposal at the event. We need outgoing, proactive volunteers to show folks the Earth-friendly way to dispose! Not only will this increase waste diverted from the landfill, we will also be able to give the event and the City of Encinitas valuable feedback on their waste stream.

Help us provide the community with resources and inspiration to reuse, reduce, and recycle.

At this event you will assist with:

  • Setting up our booth
  • Sharing information about Solana Center and our program
  • Sharing information about reusables and reducing waste
  • Teaching event goers how to properly sort between trash, recycling, and food waste
  • Packing up shop
