“If you’re not for zero waste, how much waste are you for?”
— Gary Liss

About Zero Waste:
While visionary communities across the U.S. and around the world are embracing zero waste goals and implementing policies to achieve them, Prince George’s County’s recently released draft solid waste plan is business as usual.
With its only public landfill nearing capacity, the County proposed to build an enormous and expensive transfer station to ship our waste out of county to be landfilled or incinerated in someone else’s backyard.
The good news is, local officials are asking for feedback from the public. We can insist on zero waste goals and programs, a much greener plan and a robust public process before the County approves the plan. The time is now!
Zero Waste Prince George’s is a new grassroots campaign initiated by Community Research and partners. Community Research is a Maryland-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting public health, environmental stewardship and sustainability.
