Zero Waste

Excerpts from US Conference of Mayors:  In support of Zero Waste Principles

The zero waste concept encompasses the product life cycle from design to materials management in ways that preserve value, minimize environmental impacts, and conserve natural resources.

Zero waste can shift the fiscal burden of waste.  It can empower industry to embrace resource responsibility by rewarding stewardship through purchasing and economic development incentives.
