Zero Waste Week in Bay Area March 2020

Zero Waste Humboldt logoZero Waste Humboldt is organizing a Redwood Coast contingent to participate in Zero Waste Week in the San Francisco Bay Area in March. If you are interested to learn more about Zero Waste and get updates on the state of recycling, ZWH invites you to
join the planning for travel and participation in a week of training workshops, facility tours, conference seminars, and exhibits.
The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) is a national non-profit network of 6,000 members from the fields of waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting. The NRC will host a conference with presentations from global experts on Zero Waste best practices and current information on March 18-19 at U.C. Berkeley.

Before the NRC Zero Waste conference, the annual Zero Waste Youth Convergence will be March 14-15. Zero Waste USA has scheduled ZW Certified Training Courses March 16 and 20, and the Northern California Recycling Association will present its energizing annual Recycling Update on March 17 at Freight & Salvage and is scheduling Bay Area tours that week.  Details will be finalized in the next month.
