ICYMI, Group works toward total elimination of garbage

Imagine Athens County with zero waste. That’s right, zero, none, zilch, notta. OK, that goal is a little pie-in-the-sky, but it’s exactly what the Appalachia Ohio Zero Waste Initiative is shooting for.
The AOZWI is coordinated by Rural Action in partnership with Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs. It receives funding from the Sugar Bush Foundation, a supporting organization of the Ohio University Foundation.
The AOZWI works with communities, organizations, businesses and governments in Ohio and throughout Appalachia to “build local wealth and environmental health by increasing waste diversion and supporting the development of a zero-waste economy,” according to literature from initiative members.
