Complete recycling program is included in pricing for all our events, no matter the size. We are very proud of Operation Green Team; REUSE, RECYCLE, REDUCE is the motto of our system, operating out of our catering area. Our team will remove and separate all glass, plastic, paper, cardboard and aluminum recyclables. Food waste is contained to be picked up by local farmers for their livestock. Since instituting our Green Team about 4 years ago, we have dramatically reduced waste from events by as much as 80% to 90%. We consider it a special gift; each and every celebration nurtures our fragile planet. Support your own sustainability efforts by choosing a venue that cares about waste management and living gently on our planet.
Three bright red metal bins are the only waste receptacles in the main hall. Tastefully small, our Green Team staff regularly empties them throughout our events. Our service of continually clean containers is for your guests’ convenience and is included in all our room rentals. The beauty of this one-of-a-kind aggressive waste management system is that you will not find a single large trash barrel anywhere in our Main Hall during your event!

She was also recognized by resolution on the floors of both the Senate and House of Representatives for her leadership in the revitilization and historic restoration of Commercial Street Historic District, including the successful adaptive-reuse and restoration of Firehouse No2. Commitment to sustainability is a hallmark in the ongoing restoration of this 115 year old structure.
