Recycling and composting are important, but what does it mean to go “zero waste”?
The zero-waste approach is a truly sustainable choice for your organization and emphasizes reuse over disposal, routing what has traditionally been considered trash away from landfills. With this holistic approach to waste diversion, Southface Institute can help your business achieve its zero-waste goals while saving money, reducing your carbon footprint and supporting a healthy environment.
To help Southface maintain a zero-waste campus during your visit (nothing goes to landfill), please make sure any potential waste you bring to the campus is either recyclable or compostable. Here’s a helpful guide of materials that Southface can recycle and compost.
Recyclable items should be clean and free of food debris BEFORE being placed in the recycling stream.
