Established in 2007, the
Partnership’s newest task force is committed to
making Wauconda a greener community. Led by Mark Knigge, the other members of the group include Jane
Fidler, Jackie Soccorso, Tim Staton and Ryan Sutton.
They are working on numerous projects including an
e-newsletter, giving out reusable shopping bags
at the Wauconda Chamber of Commerce Expo in
February, gathering contact information for various
recycling efforts in the community, and encouraging
other organizations in the area to incorporate
recycling programs into their regular routines -
such as the Reuse-A-Shoe program, use of CFL light
bulbs, and getting more recycling bins for around
town. The group would welcome more team members and
would love to hear your suggestions on how to keep
our town and our world greener!
If you know of a
business, organization, or individual who’s doing a
great or unique job of ‘keepin’ it green’, let us
know. We’d love to have them included in our
Featured Group of the month. Write us at
to let us know. We’ll be in touch!
