Welcome to Zero Waste Palo Alto
Zero Waste Palo Alto’s mission is to help the community reach its Zero Waste goal of virtually eliminating waste being burned or buried. Zero Waste goes beyond recycling – it’s a systems approach that first seeks to eliminate waste wherever possible, and then manages discards through reuse and recycling.
The Plan identifies new and expanded policies, programs, and
infrastructure that will be needed to reach our Zero Waste goals.
