Waste Knot helps organizations to reduce their waste and increase their recycling, as well as recognize community leaders in waste reduction through the Environmental Excellence Awards.
Applications go through a screening process. After, the Waste Knot coordinator schedules a site visit and meeting. At the site visit, you discuss your waste logistics, purchasing options, staff and member education, and other waste reduction opportunities. From this information, organizations receive a personalized Waste Reduction Action Plan and welcome letter. Waste Knot uses the “3Ps – Practice, Purchase, Policy” framework for the waste reduction action plan.
Our partners include retail stores, office-based businesses, faith-based organizations, schools, and more.
So join over 300 partners currently leading the way in Washtenaw County!
