No public staff, or politician, wants the (nearly) insurmountable task of siting a new landfill. But a Zero Waste community is not built overnight, and it’s not built by government alone. This session will outline the benefits of a Zero Waste approach and cover both the “what” and the “how” of getting there.
We’ll discuss the 21 essential steps and 6 key facilities you need to recover 90% of your discards. Then we’ll hear from government staff on how to constructively engage the community in the process to ensure your success. Lastly we’ll explore innovative public-private partnerships and social enterprises as a way to build and expand new infrastructure and programs within tight city budgets.
