Getting to Zero-Waste Training

Getting to zero-waste is an aggressive goal for most individuals, companies and communities. The recent statistics on our U.S. landfills show that over 50 percent of our current waste is recyclable materials. Another 25 percent is food and yard waste.  Moving towards zero-waste may not be as difficult as it sounds.

In this training, we will educate participants on strategies to reduce waste in the organization. We will review the challenges of waste management and ways to increase recycling and decrease landfill waste. We will provide specific resources of what materials can be recycled or composted and cite regional resources that provide recycling services.
