      Keeping It Green

      At least 75 percent of the waste from the shows is diverted away from landfills and into compost or recycling. That’s thanks to a San Jose Environmental Services Department grant and help from Republic Services, Nothing Wasted Consulting and San Jose Conservation Corps.
