Zero Waste Is A Goal And Plan

Zero Waste Humboldt’s mission is to reduce waste in Humboldt County, California. The organization formed to fill a void in science-based and creative problem-solving for waste reduction in industry and commerce, government, schools, community organizations, and homes. Inspired by the natural beauty and cultures of the Redwood Coast region, Zero Waste Humboldt assembles extraordinary teams of experts to produce the best solutions for local waste. Emphasizing resource conservation, waste prevention and achieving highest and best use of materials diverted from disposal, we have adopted the international Zero Waste Principles as the foundation for our work. We welcome you to join us!
