Going Green

We are working to make the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off more environmentally friendly! All Rib Village plates, cups, utensils and napkins are made of compostable materials. Outside of the Village, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful will have 2 compost and recycling stations to capture as much of the refuse as possible. Our goal is to capture 100% of the refuse in the Rib Village for composting and recycling and as much refuse as possible from outside of the Rib Village.
