Zero Waste Resources in Missoula

We asked, you answered! On our recent Zero Waste Questionnaire, we asked you what the biggest barriers were to reducing waste. The top response? Lack of access to resources or services.

Several of you commented on the lack of services available, or being unaware of the community resources and services that exist in and around Missoula.

Cut to – The Community Zero Waste ReSource Guide.  We have built this list of local Zero Waste Resources in and around Missoula. The establishments listed below are just some of the places we know of where you can reduce, reuse, recycle, repair, repurpose, donate, and borrow!

It’s only a start. This list is a work in progress! You have a great zero waste business, tip, or trick?  Let us know!!

We also recognize on a larger scale that there is a lack of access to resources and services, and that’s why we are here! We are working with the city to develop infrastructure and services, and as we take these first big steps together, it helps us understand how to make it possible for others.

You are a part of the change!
