About
Zero Waste

Zero Waste Warren County is a group of community volunteers working to bring Warren County into the 21st Century as a Zero Waste community. This is not only a good idea -- it is also possible and necessary and ultimately we will succeed!

 

Even if you have never heard of the term Zero Waste, you are undoubtedly familiar with some of its elements – Refuse, Reduce, Repair, Reuse, Recycle, and Compost. The quantity of municipal solid waste from our homes, businesses, schools and institutions going to landfills or incinerators can be greatly reduced in these ways – through public policies that require and incentivize the desired behaviors, and local programs and social entrepreneurs that provide the necessary infrastructure and opportunities to make these behaviors easy and convenient.

 

Zero Waste saves money, creates jobs, and is an essential part of the solution to the climate crisis because excess packaging, single-use items, and other throw-away customs, including landfilling and incineration, squander finite resources and produce greenhouse gases.

Glens Falls Repair Cafe was a huge success!

The next repair cafe will be held on Saturday, June 8,
9:30-11:30 AM
at
The Richards Library,
36 Elm St, Warrensburg
