default Zero Waste Arlington

Zero Waste Arlington, a Town-appointed committee with a strong educational focus, launched its new website in August 2022. 

“The website will provide an effective tool for educating residents and inspiring them to take action,” remarked Priya Sankalia, co-chair of Zero Waste Arlington.“We go beyond recycling containers, paper and packaging and promote practices such as refusing, reducing, reusing, and rotting (composting). These additional habits lead to less waste, particularly single-use plastic waste.”   (Town of Arlington news release, 8.23.2022)
