Chattanooga Building a Green Brick Road

Zero Waste Zone, April 14, 2012

In perfect timing with Earth month, The City of Chattanooga is exploring how to bring zero waste practices to the residential and corporate community.  The main ingredients for success are in place: 1) solid local government support, 2) corporate community enthusiasm, and 3) strong local markets for recyclable material.

Chattanooga Director of Sustainability David Crockett is using his extensive long-term relationship network to create a stellar team committed to a sustainable approach to zero waste practices.  Answering David’s beck and call to take the first steps down the zero waste path, Institute for Local Self Reliance President Neil Seldman orchestrated a one-day Zero Waste Workshop in Chattanooga on Tuesday, April 10.
