After 125 years of the Dodge County Fair, the Dodge County Fair Association, along with support from 4H Clubs and the Dodge County 4H Leaders Association, is placing aluminum can and plastic bottle recycling receptacles around the grounds. The blue bins, sponsored by the Fair Association, utilize clear plastic bags to encourage the recycling of aluminum cans and plastic bottles, as well as minimizing any trash placed in the recycling containers. Fair goers are encouraged to save their cans and bottles until they find the proper receptacle, and help our fairgrounds become greener.

The recyclables will be collected by the grounds crew throughout the Dodge County Fair, August 15-19; any proceeds from the collected cans and bottles will be put back into fairgrounds improvements. The Dodge County Fair is looking to the future by encouraging recycling, and hopes that fairgoers will make this effort a success for the future of our Fair.
