Imagine a Pasadena 30 years from now that
produces no garbage and recycles/reuses all that we throw away. The City of Pasadena invites residents
and businesses to help develop the Zero Waste Strategic Plan. Your
input is valuable as we move toward the City's ambitious goal to achieve Zero
Waste by 2040.
In 2006, the Pasadena City Council adopted
the United Nations Green Cities declaration and Urban Environmental Accords, which
provides the framework for the Green City Action Plan. Achieving Zero Waste by 2040 is one of
the Urban Environmental Accord Actions. The Zero Waste Strategic Plan is a
first step to reaching this goal.
Please provide your
input on 23 ideas for possible programs, policies, and infrastructure suggested
by businesses and residents during recent community workshops. Please complete the Zero Waste Survey by
October 8, 2012. Results of the Zero Waste Survey will be available on the
City's Zero Waste webpage on October 22, 2012.
