Zero Waste in Landfill
What is Zero Waste in Landfill (ZWIL)?
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.
