[GreenYes] Where in the World have Governments adopted Zero Waste?


Apologies for Cross-Postings

This is becoming one of the most frequently asked questions I get. I'd like to post a list on the ZWIA website of:

1) Local governments that have adopted Zero Waste as a goal
2) Local governments that have adopted a Zero Waste plan or program

I'd like to list this by country.

Please reply to the listserve with any lists of such governmental action, so that we can compile it on the ZWIA website.

Thanks to all that can help!

Warren and Gary,

Recent discussions with members of the NY City Council have raised the question of just where Zero Waste policy or goals have been adopted by governments. While I've certainly rattled off some of the better known ones - I was hoping that one or both of you could provide me with or direct me to a somewhat comprehensive list. Please let me know asap - please reply all so as to speedily pass this information to my colleague, Barbara Warren, who co-authored <http://www.consumersunion.org/other/zero-waste/>Reaching for Zero our model plan for NYC.

Thanks,
Timothy J.W. Logan
Lead Organizer, NYC Zero Waste Campaign
