Achieving Zero Waste with Innovative Reuse and Recycling Contracts
Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT
Category: Other Events

Join us for a webinar where we’ll share innovative zero waste contracting approaches to reducing and managing materials to advance source reduction, reuse, and recycling. The U.S. Forest Service will share their strategies for achieving net zero waste at all large fire incidents by 2030, and Urban Ore, Inc., will discuss their transfer station salvage, reuse and recycling contract with the City of Berkeley.

The Forest Service’s model Blanket Purchase Agreement (executed in 2019) standardized recycling systems and signage and provided standardized reporting for large fire incidents in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Oregon and Washington. The model can be adapted for use by organizations with multiple facilities, campuses or events. In 2021, the City of Berkeley established a contact with Urban Ore, Inc., to advance the city’s Zero Waste Goal and reduce operational costs associated with long-haul transportation and landfill disposal.
