Register in advance for this webinar:

The Brookline Department of Public Works and Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) is excited to announce the expansion of our sustainable waste management initiative through the development of Brookline’s first-ever Zero Waste Plan. As Brookline works to meet our climate mitigation and adaptation goals, as well as become a more equitable and healthy Town for all, we know sustainable waste management plays a critical role in shaping the future of our community. This first meeting will offer participants a brief overview of the waste reduction services and systems already in place and discuss the establishment of our Zero Waste goals. We hope that you will be able to join us to learn more about Zero Waste principles and also share your ideas on what is important to you in Brookline’s journey towards  a more sustainable, climate-resilient, and equitable future.
