Imagine a Pasadena that less than 30 years from now produces no garbage and recycles and reuses everything that today gets thrown away.
The Pasadena Public Works Department wants to work with the community to develop the Zero Waste Strategic Plan to get us there by 2040.
Two community meetings are scheduled Thursday, Dec. 1, in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library, 285 E. Walnut St. The morning meeting from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. will focus on the perspective of the business community; the evening meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. will consider residents’ perspectives. All Pasadenans are welcome to both meetings.
The ambitious goal includes more recycling and, even more important, an emphasis on waste reduction. The city of Pasadena has already embarked on a planning process to identify policies and programs needed to reach zero waste. Community participation is critical for developing a plan that works for all Pasadena residents and businesses.
