ZERO Waste Conference - May 30th, 2009

All of us together can make ZERO!
The City of Los Angeles' Department of Public Works will be hosting its 4th Zero Waste Citywide Conference on Saturday, May 30th, 2009 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Center at Cathedral Plaza (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels), Second Floor Ballroom, located at 555 W. Temple St, Los Angeles. Doors are open at 7:30 a.m. for early attendees to partake of a light breakfast and to receive information from the vendor tables.
The Zero Waste Plan is being developed with input from stakeholders representing a broad section of the community. In the last two years, stakeholders have met to contribute to the City's development of a Solid Waste Integrated Resources Plan (SWIRP) that will lead Los Angeles into a "zero waste" city by 2030. The plan will include waste reduction, increase recycling and trash management. At the conference, the Policy, Program and Facility Plan will be presented for review and discussion.
