Slash Your Trash-Join the Zero Waste Challenge
If you have ever wondered how to reduce the amount of waste you create, Hennepin county's new Zero Waste Challenge is a great way to learn more and get hands-on help. The county is looking for 50 households to join others in taking a year-long look at the goods we buy and the waste we create to uncover opportunities and challenges to increasing recycling and reducing waste. The results and lessons learned will be used to develop future waste reduction programs. The program starts September 15, 2016, and ends September 15, 2017. For their efforts, participating households will receive a $350 stipend. Apply to participate by August 26 at hennepin.us/zerowastechallenge.
