Blog #37 - Zero Waste Workshop

Fairfax ZERO WASTE 2020

presented by the Town of Fairfax

There is no Away

Tuesday June 29th from 7:00 pm-9:00 pm, 2010 at 46 Park Road (Women’s Club)

Zero waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. Any trash sent to landfills is minimal. The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature.

The Town of Fairfax set a goal of being Zero Waste by the year 2020 and we need to work together to get there. Manufacturers, haulers, businesses, and consumers all have a role to play.

At this event will review the Marin County Zero Waste study’s Phase I and II implementation guidelines. We will explain the JPA study and then chart out responsible parties and tasks ahead of us.

Please join Council members Larry Bragman and Pam Hartwell-Herrero for an evening of taking a vision and creating the steps needed to make it a reality. If there is interest we will form a Zero Waste Task Force.
