I googled the catchier wording (If you're not for zero waste...) and found:

an editorial in MSW Management saying that buttons were passed out at a Jan 02 NRC meeting:

In late January 2002, Michael Jessen picked it up (with the Canadian turn of phrasing) in an article at:

NCRA presented "Waste Side Story" using the line at a CRRA conference in July, 2003:

Anyone know who brought it to NRC in 2002? Eric Lombardi??? John Davis???

I think that I can proudly say that CRRA, the California Resource Recovery Assoc coined that phrase.  At a NRC conference a few years ago we had buttons printed that had waste with the the big circle/slash through it that we were passing out.  If people didn't want the "Zero Waste" button, we passed out another button that said "Im for ___% waste" and ask people, "If you're not for Zero Waste, how much waste are you for".  I'm not totally positive, but I think that John Davis might have come up with it.
