Zero Waste


Seperation is the key

The biggest part of solid waste is organic. And it is this part of waste that makes it smell bad. When waste is properly separated, the pollution to the environment is minimized. The purpose of the ZeroWaste Training is to educate people how to safely separate waste, so that each type becomes more valuable as either recycled or upcycled material.
