Zero Waste is a big idea with one goal: to recognized items disposed as a resource and to reduce and eliminate waste.

The North Bay Zero Waste Symposium will engage community stakeholders by showcasing zero waste policies, programs and infrastructure that design waste out of the system wherever possible and divert discarded materials through composting, reclaiming, reducing, reusing, and recycling. We can eliminate waste in the North Bay with the participation of all residents and businesses. Together, it is possible to be a model for the rest of the community and beyond.

The North Bay Zero Waste Symposium goal is to:

Educate the community on zero waste;
Encourage zero waste as a goal North Bay residents, cities, the county, businesses, institutions, and nonprofits;
Support zero waste policy goals through action plans that significantly reduce waste and maximize recycling, composting and reuse;
Support business zero waste certification through the Green Business Certification Institute which is aligned with LEED for Buildings Operations and Maintenance; and
Provide a networking opportunity with like-minded organizations, businesses, institutions and residents.

TOPICS INCLUDE: Source Reduction Strategies and Examples, Food Waste Prevention, Carbon Life-cycle Benefits through Composting, Commercial and Institutional Organics, Zero Waste Plans and more!
