For those planning on attending the Battle of Flowers or Fiesta Flambeau parades, the City’s Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) reminds parade-goers to place plastic bottles and aluminum cans in their proper place – a recycling mesh bag or blue cart.
During both parades there will be recycling and trash locations along the parade route. City volunteers at each parade will distribute yellow mesh recycling bags prior to the start of each parade in which attendees can place recyclables. No paper products or trash should be placed in the mesh bags or blue carts located along the parade routes.
In addition to the mesh recycling bags, volunteers will provide trash bags to attendees. The bags allow parade-goers the opportunity to properly dispose of their recyclables and trash while staying in their seats. SWMD wants everyone to make a conscious effort to throw trash in the plastic garbage or in the trash bin instead of throwing it on the ground.
Let’s all do our part for the environment! Make your Fiesta celebration Green. Fit. Friendly!
