Again, SECIA has supported the Annual Como Cookout's (Sept. 20) to achieve a low waste event. SECIA's fall HECUA intern, Alison, came on board and recruited volunteers to station the waste center of the event. The photo show these volunteers monitoring Cookout-goers as they dump their food waste. Besides the eight 50-gallon bags of compostable waste collected , the event utilized cloth table cloths and planners planned the serveware to be low impact. This year's event had about 850 attendees.
