Zero Waste Washtenaw is the County’s zero waste events program. The purpose of the program is to encourage and assist all event participants (organizers, vendors, attendees, etc.) to minimize their environmental footprint at events through practicing zero waste.
Zero Waste Washtenaw recognizes that each of our event partners is at their own unique place along their zero waste journey. Our program meets organizers where they're at, and offers any combination of services based on specific event needs and County resource availability. Common services include:
Assistance in vendor education and volunteer training; guides available for distribution as needed
Waste stations and additional supplies lending
For events within Washtenaw County, waste stations and supplies are available after event consultation with Zero Waste Washtenaw for pick-up at the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Division (705 N. Zeeb Road, Ann Arbor).

Volunteer With Us!
Zero Waste Event volunteers educate event goers on the items they've received and if they can be composted, recycled, or landfilled. Volunteers also help with station set up and breakdown and measuring weights for metrics.
