Volunteers needed to help recycle at Dakota County Fair

Dakota County is taking steps to recycle more waste at this year's County fair in Farmington. 
Volunteers are needed at waste stations throughout the fairgrounds to help instruct the public on what to recycle and explain why recycling is important.
No experience is necessary to volunteer. Volunteers receive training, a t-shirt and free admission to the fair on the day of their shift.
For the third year, organic materials like food scraps and soiled paper will be collected and taken to a local facility for composting. Dakota County has taken steps to improve education efforts in 2016 to keep organic materials out of the landfill.
The fair is held Aug. 8–14. Sign-up to volunteer by visiting and search "volunteering" or call Ali Vandercook at 952-891-7552.
