Waste reduction programs

Waste reduciton requires efforts at all stages of a material's or product's lifecyle, not just at the end.

Food and organic waste

Food waste is a leading driver of climate change. Our studies show organic materials account for 42.5% of residential waste, and food waste accounts for 10.6%.

We also have programs for composting and anearobic digestion.


To help reduce the widespread pollutant plastic, we focus on several plastics issues, many involving restrictions single-use plastics common in day-to-day life and required recycled-content.
