Zero Waste cannot happen in a vacuum. It is a concept that needs support from surrounding governments and businesses in the regions where diversion programs are already happening. This helps spread the costs and benefits of the new Circular Economy.

Our company may be based in Austin where much Zero Waste activity is already occurring, but we seek consulting opportunities with entities outside the Austin city limits that want to develop and employ these types of policies for operational efficiencies and/or a stronger marketing edge.

Please contact us for consulting services.
