Food Waste Case Study
Lakefront Festival of the Arts – Milwaukee, WI
The Lakefront Festival of the Arts is a nationally known art festival, held on the grounds of the Milwaukee Art Museum in Milwaukee, WI. Since 1962, the Friends of Art sponsor art booths, a music stage, a concession area (food court), and two small beverage booths, all co-located on the south grounds of the art museum. The outdoor festival attracts over 170 art exhibitors and hundreds of art spectators from all over the country. The festival also sponsors a university college art competition.
The Lakefront festival had volunteers to collect from recycle containers in the concession area. They placed 6 or 7 recycle containers near waste containers in the concession area.
