Earth Day 2015: Path to Zero Waste

Join us on Earth Day to learn how the District is working to increase the city’s recycling rate, adopt new innovative technologies, and work towards “zero waste” as defined in the Sustainable DC Plan. 

Mayor Muriel Bowser, DDOE Director Tommy Wells, and invited guest speakers from California and Canada will discuss the future of waste management and answer questions such as, “How do we turn waste collection and disposal into materials recovery and economic opportunity?”

Invited speakers will discuss in multiple panels waste reduction, composting, reuse, anaerobic digestion, and other relevant topics. This summit will provide an opportunity to network with attendees from the waste management industry as well as representatives from the non-profit, government, university, embassy and health care sectors.
