Skokie’s Spring Greening is a community fair for residents to promote sustainable and green living.

Now in its seventh year, the event will be held on Sunday, April 9 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Niles North High School. Residents are invited to drop off household items for recycling and reuse and to visit the indoor fair, featuring green products and services, sales of repurposed crafts, family activities, and lively music!

The event is a collaborative effort of the Skokie Park District, Niles Township High School District 219, Skokie Chamber of Commerce, Village of Skokie, Skokie Public Library, and over 80 helpful volunteers!

Recycling/Reuse Dropoff

The first Skokie’s Spring Greening held in 2011 was a resounding success! Since then, participation has grown, with up to 860 vehicles dropping off household items for reuse and recycling. Last year, 25 recycling stations hosted by local businesses and organizations accepted household items, including clothing, batteries, extension cords, bicycles, electronics, latex paint, paper for shredding, eye glasses, and more.


Green Fair

Every year hundreds of people attend the green fair indoors, visiting the booths of 40 or more businesses and organizations that provide green products and services. The event showcases a variety of green living opportunities, such as home insulation, organic lawn care, eco-friendly paint products, green builders, electric cars, worm composting, and wind turbines. Crafters sell repurposed wares, and live music and children’s activities complete the fair.
