Zero Waste San Diego’s mission is to create, promote and implement programs that:
- Maximize management and conservation of resources
- Reduce “waste”-related greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming
- Educate and persuade citizens, businesses, and governments in the San Diego County region to adopt a zero-waste philosophy
- Provide ideas and guidance through the process of making and implementing Zero Waste plans in our region
It is possible to eliminate the detritus of our lives and its negative impact on our planet and our future. We can do this by recovering the valuable commodities we currently throw away, developing markets and technology for as much of it as possible, and finding alternatives that allow us to eliminate what is not reusable.
