Keep the Columbia Heights Fire and Ice Plunge green as a Zero Waste volunteer! Each winter, several community organizations host this silly fundraiser where sponsored jumpers leap into the frozen Silver Lake! Cheering onlookers enjoy music, hot food, and beer.
HeightsNEXT volunteers are garbage guards for the event, directing recycling and compost to their proper bins. This simple assistance teaches people that not all garbage needs to go in a landfill.
