Waste Reduction Week Events

Step 1. Plan an event

Organizing waste reduction events is an excellent way to engage your community in the 3Rs and waste reduction. Any organization, school, community, or business can register an event.  Popular events include: waste-free lunches in both schools and offices, hosting waste collection drives (hazardous waste, textiles, or electronics), and free documentary screenings and information sessions.

Step 2. Register your event in the Waste Reduction Week events Directory
