Zero Waste in Landfill is an ambitious goal, especially with kids who are just learning the difference between trash and recycling. So WMEAC and Spring Lake Public Schools are building a model, student-led zero waste initiative with the potential of scaling zero waste practices district wide and region wide. We know if we can get kids to start reducing landfill waste at a young age those practices will stay with them through adulthood.
This education and engagement strategy aligns with statewide policy work to expand recycling across Michigan.
