Draft Zero Waste Plan available for review

From Hennepin County:

Provide comments on the draft plan by March 20

The draft Hennepin County Zero Waste Plan (PDF) is available for the public to review and provide comments.

The plan outlines how we will accomplish our goals of creating a system where all materials are designed to become resources for others to use and preventing 90% or more of all discarded materials from being landfilled or incinerated.

Provide comments in the following ways:

Take the survey

The survey walks through the plan’s goal, aims, and key actions, gathers feedback on level of support for these items, and provides opportunities to offer specific comments.

Attend an online community meeting

Thursday, March 9 at 6:30 p.m.

At the meeting, county staff and the consultant that helped develop the plan will briefly present the plan’s goal, aims and key actions proposed.

Participants will then have the opportunity to provide feedback on their level of support on the aims and actions in the plan. Participants will also be able to ask questions of the presenters and make verbal or written comments. Register to attend.

If you are unable to attend, the presentation will be recorded and posted online at
