Waste Reduction Week

October 21, 2019 to October 27, 2019
8:00 am to 4:00 pm

October 21–27 is Waste Reduction Week. This national campaign encourages everyone to think about the social, economic, and environmental impacts of consumption and waste. As Waste Reduction Week approaches, we hope that residents will join us in taking actions that create meaningful impacts, including:

  • learning more about the circular economy concept, which encourages people to reuse materials
  • reducing textile waste by buying used and donating or repurposing clothing
  • nominating a waste reduction innovator or advocate
  • swapping out plastics (especially single-use plastics) for “bring-your-own” items
  • reducing food waste • swapping, sharing, or repairing equipment, electronics, or clothing
  • donating or recycling e-waste
