On August 6th, 2018, the Missoula City Council Adopted ZERO by FIFTY unanimously. We're already hard at work collaborating with partners, advising and supporting residents and businesses with their own Zero Waste initiatives, and gathering resources for widespread plan implementation. The community excitement is palpable, and momentum is real. We'll have more updates soon, but wanted to post the plan below so that it can continue to provide a framework to inspire ideas, innovation and action as Missoula pivots toward becoming a Zero Waste community. Link below.
The City of Missoula and our ZERO by FIFTY team is excited to debut the four plan "Paths" or focus areas of the forthcoming ZERO by FIFTY plan, along with supporting strategies:
The four focus areas, or Paths to Zero Waste in Missoula are: Access, Infrastructure, Education and Policy. These paths and related strategies came into focus from studying best practices in other communities, and from YOU via our three Community Listening Sessions hosted in March.
We're excited to put detail this foundation, and are aiming to bring the full plan to the public and City Council in April. Stay tuned! Please click on the link below to review ZERO by FIFTY Paths and Strategies.
Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.Presentation
