Sponsor the Next Zero Waste Associate Series!

Zero Waste USA is seeking training hosts across the US. Each cohort meets once a month for 3 months – on-line or in person at a location of your choice. Using our host jurisdiction as an example, we evaluate existing policies, programs and social infrastructures and identify local service voids using the ZWUSA Toolkit. We then discuss pros and cons of potential high diversion and Zero Waste initiatives. Class projects are a series of succinct yet substantial Zero Waste Recommendations for communities, institutions and businesses. For more information, please contact Portia Sinnott.
