Blue Goes Green in 2016


All over the country, festivals large and small are "going green," taking steps to cut down on trash. We at Blueberry are doing our part to keep our event clean and green! The Marshall County Blueberry Festival started its recycling efforts in 2008. Since then, we’ve diverted over 50 TONS of recyclables from the landfill!

This year we continue to encourage all our Festival attendees to recycle your bottles and cans. We’ve placed recycling containers all over the park for your convenience. Before you toss that can or bottle, make sure you’ve located a recycling bin and throw your EMPTY container in there. Thanks!


Thanks to Committed Community Partners!
Thank you to our "Recycling Sponsor" PNC Bank. Located here in Plymouth, PNC Bank has been our recycling sponsor since our efforts started in 2008.
Coca Cola In 2013, Coca-Cola Bottling Company awarded the Blueberry Festival a grant to purchase new recycling bins. With these additional bins, we are able to provide more opportunities for Festival-goers to recycle!
Here's what we have recycled since our campaign began.
2009 - 3 Tons    2010 - 6.45 Tons    2011 - 8.25 Tons
2012 - 6.8 Tons    2013 - 7.4 Tons    2014 - 7.2 Tons    2015 - 5.6 Tons
