_____________________________________________________

The primary goal of the zero waste initiative is to have nothing placed in a landfill, using all waste materials beneficially through recycling, composting, or reuse opportunities. By implementing such programs, we can create viable economical alternatives to eliminate toxic discharges in our land, water, and air.

At this conference we will focus on ways to divert waste materials from the landfill through well-designed collection programs, work processes, and education curriculum. Penn State faculty and staff, Intellectual Property inventors, waste technicians, community leaders, and students will share their collaborations, curriculum, and programs to show how they are meeting the challenge of the “trash mountain” to reach the ultimate goal — zero waste.
