22. Recycling The OCF Board
of Directors has set the goal of a waste-
free Fair. Our mission: To reduce the
amount of waste generated by our event,
minimize our impact upon the land by
removing all extraneous materials from
it, and to set an example that future
generations will be proud to follow.
    For the convenience of our family
and guests, recycling kiosks are provided
and maintained from Thursday of pre-
Fair to Monday, 6 p.m. of post-Fair. We
ask that all adhere to the “Pack It In,
Pack It Out” policy outlined in Section 39
of this handbook and to “Leave No
Trace” of your visit upon your departure.    will be subject to disciplinary action,
