WHAT IS ZERO WASTE
Zero waste is both a goal and a plan of action to phase out waste disposal in landfills and incinerators through a variety of strategies such as waste prevention, redesign, reuse, organic waste recovery and recycling. Overall, implementing zero waste systems creates more resilient communities, a cooler climate, social equity, and healthier environments.
Over 550 municipalities around the world are already taking steps to transition into zero waste in a wide range of economic, social, climatic, and legal contexts.
