Tips on hosting a Green Block Party

Green Block Parties are Easy and fun!

Just check the box on your permit to host a Green Block Party and Public works will automatically deliver your Green Block Party Barricades along with zero waste receptacles for compost, recycling, and landfill. These receptacles are provided compliments of the Village Sustainability Commission. At the end of your party, simply leave the empty receptacles on your front porch for collection.

All residents will have the opportunity to take the River Forest Health Lawn, Healthy Family Keep ON the Grass pledge and receive a free lawn sign! Plus receive coupons to the Sugar Beet Food Co-Op.

Why a Green Block Party?

A Green Block Party is an opportunity to learn more about the new sustainable initiatives in our community.  Now in its 5th year, the Green Block Party Program is a proud initiative of the River Forest Sustainability Commission.
