Communities, businesses and institutions are leading the way to Zero Waste all over the world. There are thousands of communities, businesses, and institutions that are working hard to minimize their impacts to the environment with the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health. 

Zero Waste USA is the U.S. National Affiliate of the Zero Waste International Alliance and recognizes communities, organizations, businesses, and institutions on the Road to Zero Waste. 


You will be asked to provide a summary of your Zero Waste initiatives and a calculation summarizing your level of diversion (annual tons or volume of waste reduction, reuse, recycling, compost, landfill or incineration)

  • Complete the application and notify Zero Waste USA ( Amanda Waddle ) that you have completed your submission. 
  • The Certification Committee meets monthly to review submissions.
