Why Connecticut Needs ZERO WASTE SCHOOLS and How to Become One

According to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection,

"The past decade has seen significant changes in the state’s materials management system, including new recycling mandates, new product stewardship programs, and changes in the economics of waste-to-energy and recycling. " The Live Green CT Zero Waste School Program is aimed at supporting the state’s goal of 60 percent diversion from disposal by 2024.

Learn more about the benefits of becoming a Zero Waste School by contacting us for a complimentary evaluation.
