Zero Waste Design Guidelines
Monday, Dec 4, 2017
Over the course of the past year, through tours to waste-to-energy plants + recycling facilities + diversion centers, Getting to Zero revealed the vast network of spaces that keep NYC clean, healthy, and functioning. But it is clear that if the city is to achieve its ambitious goal of sending zero waste to landfill by 2030, we need to fundamentally rethink the way we manage our trash
The release of the Zero Waste Design Guidelines is an important step in that direction.
