Tulip Time: Rethink. Reuse. Recycle.

Rethink. Reuse. Recycle.

Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) is excited to be the Official Tulip Time Conservation Partner for the 7th year in a row: www.tuliptime.com/green. HBPW has been a community-owned resource since 1893, and strives to be environmentally responsible while providing reliable and economical electric, water and wastewater treatment, and fiber services to the Holland community.

Are you wondering how you will navigate experiencing all that Tulip Time has to offer? Rethink your transportation choice by taking the Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle. The shuttle not only offers you optimal convenience for getting into downtown, but it's also better for the environment. By using public transportation you'll save time avoiding traffic and parking, and also reduce your carbon emissions.

As you explore the Tulip Time Festival, you will find free water bottle filling stations. Bring a refillable water bottle for reuse. There is no need to buy disposable bottles of water when you can conveniently refill! Additionally, you will find recycling bins around the festival, promoting stewardship of our resources. Be sure to recycle acceptable materials.

HBPW will be helping Tulip Time paint the town orange. Before the Kinderparade on Thursday, May 9, we'll be passing out orange hard hats for kids and other conservation tips. The West Ottawa Robotics team (WOBOTS) and their robots will be assisting us!

In addition, partially guided tours of Holland Energy Park (HEP) will be held during Tulip Time. Tours are on a first come first serve basis, and will be held Monday thru Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., as well as Monday thru Wednesday afternoons from 2 – 3:30 p.m. Participants need to arrive no later than ten minutes after the tour start time. More information can be found at www.hollandenergypark.com/events/ or by contacting the HBPW visitor programs specialist at 616-355-1213.

Remember to Rethink, Reuse, Recycle:  See you at Tulip Time!
