2016 Green Fork Restaurants
Seventeen downtown Louisville restaurants earned Green Fork distinction for consistently following required environmentally friendly practices throughout 2016. See the list below.
The Green Fork Award, established in January 2015 and first awarded in 2016, recognizes restaurants in Louisville's Central Business District that consistently follow environmentally friendly practices for disposal of food waste. It's part of our larger Wet/Dry Recycling program that separates wet and dry waste to preserve the value of each for recycling or composting. That diverts materials from our local landfill, extending its active useful life. Restaurants and coffee shops collect their wet material, such as food scraps, liquids, and used paper products, in brown carts serviced by QRS Recycling. This material is ultimately composted and reused, rather than taking up valuable space in the landfill. This video shows how the Wet-Dry program works.
Look for the Green Fork sticker in the window of your favorite downtown restaurant.
