Keep the Columbia Heights Jamboree green as a Zero Waste volunteer! Each summer the Columbia Heights Lions Club hosts this city-wide festival, complete with sports tournaments, a medallion hunt, a car show, a parade, a beer garden, a carnival, and much more!

HeightsNEXT volunteers are garbage guards for the carnival, directing recycling and compost to their proper bins. This simple assistance teaches people that not all garbage needs to go in a landfill.
