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.
Since 2015 the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Division has collaborated with our partner Recycle Ann Arbor to expand the reach and impact of zero waste events throughout Washtenaw County.
