Share your zero-waste ideas
Friday, October 16, 2020 by Tai Moses
Do you have any ideas that could help the city reach its zero-waste goal? Of course you do! Austin’s zero-waste goal, which was adopted in 2011, “includes keeping 90 percent of unwanted items out of local landfills by 2040.” That doesn’t sound so hard. Share your ideas, thoughts, opinions and brainstorms via this online survey launched by Austin Resource Recovery. The survey, which will be open from Oct. 15-Nov. 15, takes about 10 minutes to complete and your feedback will help ARR develop a comprehensive plan toward reaching zero-waste. As ARR Director Ken Snipes says, “Taking care of the environment is everyone’s responsibility; for us, it starts with keeping these valuable, reusable materials out of the landfill. The public’s input will help inform our new comprehensive plan and identify opportunities, initiatives and programs for a waste-free Austin.”
