Vendors present at the event include:

Shred Nations and All-American Records Management: Unwanted confidential documents including bank statements, old tax return files, medical records, credit card receipts, etc., will be shredded on site from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees limited to three banker boxes (100 pounds) , and machine paper, letterhead, white tablet paper, computer printout paper, laser print paper and other miscellaneous white paper and staples are accepted.

GreenSheen: Old latex-based paint will be recycled without harming the environment.

Kids can make a reusable bag out of a T-shirt at the Green Mountain Sustainable Neighborhood Group table. Projects can be made starting at 11 a.m., and it is first-come, first-serve. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. An active member of the group will be on site to answer questions. In addition, mini-seminars will be offered on composting (12:30 p.m.) and zero waste (1:30 p.m.).
