Zero Waste

More sustainability & resilience in our community.

Our Zero Waste initiatives are leading Missoula’s waste reduction efforts across sectors. Collaborative, grassroots initiatives like the Zero Waste Missoula community group directly enhance Missoulians’ understanding of the benefits of waste reduction and create the foundation for achieving citywide Zero Waste goals. This includes ongoing collaboration with the City that resulted in the 2016 passage of a Zero Waste Resolution and 2018 unanimous adoption of the ZERO by FIFTY Plan by Missoula City Council. We wrote the plan that outlines specific measures and pathways to move Missoula toward 90% waste reduction by 2050. Alongside our City collaboration, we work closely with Missoula County Public Schools to help move the district toward Zero Waste.
