Zero Landfill 2017

2017.03.10_ZEROLANDFILL-01

We are happy to announce that ZeroLandfillDenver (ZLD) has been adopted by Women in Design, Denver and are beginning the program in March 2017!

 

About the Program:

ZeroLandfill is an award-winning up cycling program held seasonally that diverts expired specification samples and supports the needs of local artists and art educators while reducing pressure on local landfill capacity.
 
POLLINATION:
Collection of materials from design firms to collection site during a specific window of time.
Collection requirements
  • Firms will bring Discontinued, expired or unused samples from their Designer libraries.  No paper or product catalogs or tip cards will be accepted.
  • Please sort items by type in boxes with firm/organization name clearly marked.
  • If possible, remove binders and/or backing and recycle at your home or workplace.
CULTIVATE:
Separation, sorting and weighing of samples. Volunteers needed.   This is often a fun, bonding interaction with amazing people from the community.
 
HARVEST:
The public comes to take samples away for their use.
