 THE Sustainability Market

Are you curious about how to reduce waste, but don’t know where to start? Are you interested in more resources to help you on your journey?

Join us for The Sustainability Market, hosted by Reduce Waste Chicago and the North Center Neighbors Association.

Formerly the NNA Recycling Pop-Up, The Sustainability Market will feature RWC’s Reuse & Recycle Pop-Up for you to drop off common household items not accepted by the city’s Blue Cart program, as well as retail vendors, artists and exhibitors focused on environmental sustainability.

Upcoming market dates

Stay tuned for 2023 dates...

What is Reduce Waste Chicago?

Last year, we introduced the NNA (now NCNA) Recycling Pop-Up and watched it quickly grow from collecting 20 items in April, to 40 in October, to almost 80 in its first event this February.

Our work has attracted interest from organizations across the city that are eager to divert materials from the landfill and educate their neighbors about ways to reduce waste.

Due to this growth and our new collaborations, we’re excited to share that the Recycling Pop-Up is now Reduce Waste Chicago, a program of the North Center Neighbors Association.

We are now dedicated to helping all Chicagoans reduce waste.

You can follow Reduce Waste Chicago on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We also welcome you to join our Facebook Community Group, where you can connect and share ideas with other Chicagoans who are on the same journey, and subscribe to the RWC email newsletter list.

This milestone wouldn’t be possible without the volunteer work and financial support of community members like you, and board members who share our vision.
