COUNTING DOWN TO ZERO WASTE:
New Ways to Counter the "Throwaway Society"
Tuesday, April 18, 6:30-9 pm

Supervisors' Chambers,
Marin Civic Center, San Rafael.

Zero-waste policies and strategies are rapidly gaining traction in California at the State, County, and city level and in the European Community.

Tying together fresh links in the zero-waste vision, the workshop features dialogue among the Bay Area's top experts on how waste reduction, reuse and recycling can, and should, go to much higher levels. A unique window into the need for even better performance and the exciting new possibilities to move affordably beyond conventional, environmentally costly   "throw-away-and-dump" solutions of the past. Hear how prevention and avoidance can move Marin farther along in its efforts to be a world-class leader in solid waste management and sustainability.

Hosted by Marin Supervisor Charles McGlashan. Admission is free.
