About Skokie's Spring Greening

Skokie’s Spring Greening began in 2011 as a community fair for residents to promote sustainable and green living. Since then, participation has grown, with over 900 vehicles dropping off household items in 2017. Now in its eighth year, the event has evolved into a comprehensive, community recycling event open to all households of Niles Township and those residing in communities of the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC). SWANCC member communities are listed below. Please note that due to declining participation at the indoor green fair, Skokie’s Spring Greening will only feature drop-off recycling in 2018. Thank you to all of the green and sustainable businesses, organizations, crafters and entertainers who participated in the indoor fair over the past seven years! Skokie’s Spring Greening is a collaborative effort of the Skokie Park District, Niles Township High School District 219, Village of Skokie, Skokie Chamber of Commerce, Skokie Public Library, and 80 helpful volunteers!
