Event Details

Join members of the Chicago Conservation Corps' FWD Uptown team to learn more about living green in Uptown this winter.

Keep your home warm efficiently this winter! We will present techniques for weatherizing your home or apartment, and give away weatherization kits*. Stop drafty windows and doors, keep the heat in your home!

We will also collect small electronics for recycling. Many electronics, such as old cellphones, should not be thrown in the regular trash! But, how else do you get rid of them? We're here to help! The e-waste collected at this event will contribute to an e-waste recycling program through the Uptown organization ICA.

Learn more about the Clean Kitchen, Green Community program! Certain residents of Uptown are eligible to receive a free, fully installed and warranted, food waste disposer! Learn more about this exciting research project in your community!

*All recipients of weatherization kits must be residents of the City of Chicago.
