Why did you proclaim Waste Reduction Week? What are you doing to help reduce and divert waste?: 
Promoting Waste Reduction Week fits well with our strategic goals of environmental stewardship and sustainability priorities. We have added two new programs this year to help with waste diversion. We held regular household hazardous waste days once a week from June until the end of September, which collected over 25 tons of hazardous materials. We also started a leaf and yard waste drop off program to start a composting cycle in our landfill. We have added Recycle Coach as a new outreach tool to encourage more recycling and provide quick, "at your finger tips" information on acceptable recycle items and other waste diversion tips.
