(Jackson, Wyo.) - Last Summer, the Town of Jackson officially took action to adopt a Zero Waste Resolution
Prior to this, Teton County adopted a similar resolution in September2014,
and as a result, the Town and County have partnered in this effort to
develop a fifteen year plan to achieve 60% landfill diversion by the year
Tonight, the Sustainability Series will host a panel discussion entitled
“Teton County on the Road to Zero Waste.” Panelists will present a vision
for the future as well as a review of the facts and figures that pertain to
solid waste and recycling in the community today.
According to the Facebook Event Page
, "the discussion will
include highlights from the zero waste planning effort, an explanation of
what it means to divert materials from the landfill, and a quick course in
Recycling 101 taught by experts from the front lines of local solid waste
and recycling management."
The event will be at 6 p.m. at Spark Jackson Hole (140 East Broadway).
