WE ARE DEDICATED TO THE ELIMINATION OF WASTE AND POLLUTION. In 1996, The United States may have generated more than 1.5 billion tons of waste. In 1995, 325 million tons of "municipal" waste were generated. However, using Pennsylvania as an example, "municipal" waste is only 1/5 of the total amount of waste generated. In addition, this figure doesn't include foreign waste imports. Voluntary efforts at waste reduction and recycling have not stemmed this tidal wave of trash devastating our resources.
ZWA promotes a Legislative Agenda that will...
- Require that products must be safely recycled, composted, or stored.
- Create markets for recycled and composted materials.
- End waste disposal imports and exports across U.S. borders.
Zero Waste America, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer, environmental organization dedicated to the elimination of waste and pollution through legislative reform and the encouragement of "zero waste" business and practices. Membership is free. We use the internet as our primary communication tool. We provide analysis and a wide range of information on waste issues.
