Welcome to Zero Waste Palo Alto

Zero Waste Palo Alto’s mission is to help the community reach its Zero Waste goal of virtually eliminating waste being burned or buried. Zero Waste goes beyond recycling – it’s a systems approach that first seeks to eliminate waste wherever possible, and then manages discards through reuse and recycling.
